Farm Crew Agriculture Skills Course – Take one or any combo Class 6: All About Tractors

All About Farm Tractors with Diane & Patrick Bollinger, Foothill Roots Farm
Join us for a class all about tractors! Patrick & Diane of Foothill Roots Farm will lead a
conversation about the capabilities of different types of tractors (big ones, walk behind, and in
between) and the roll that each can play on a small farm. Foothill Roots Farm grows mixed
veggies, fruit and flowers on 6 acres in Meadow Vista and have used (and decided to not use)
tractors on many levels- electric cultivating tractors, walk-behind tillers, and farm tractors. Their
attention to soil and ecological health has encouraged them to explore low-till practices as well.


Classes are $22 each and then there is an option to purchase a block of 7 classes ($140 - $20/class)
and the entire course for $235 (all 13 classes at $18/class.)
