Join PVAS as we tour this innovative organic farm in Inwood, WV.                                                  

                                                                                         Participants will learn about the challenges and successes of growing organically and the latest organic farming techniques. They will also see first-hand the impact that stink bugs are having on local crops. The farm's energy-saving initiatives include greenhouses heated by solar hot water and the 2nd largest photovoltaic solar electrical systems in West Virginia.

The tour will last from 3:00 p.m. to about 5:00 p.m. It will proceed on schedule in the event of light rain but it will be cancelled if there is heavy rain or a storm with wind and lightning.

Tour will consist of moderate walking on uneven terrain and a tractor ride.  Sturdy walking shoes, drinking water, insect repellent, and sun screen advised.

Carpooling is recommended due to limited parking.  If you are interested in caravaning or carpooling meet Debbie in the back area (near Route 51) at the Food Lion Parking lot in Inwood.  We will leave the lot promptly at 2:30 p.m. 

Following the tour, the farm is presenting a three-hour workshop of its own on "Managing Invasive Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs in Organic Agriculture, Outbuildings and Homes." The workshop will be held from 5:00-8:00 p.m. at the farm, and everyone participating in the Audubon tour will be welcome to attend. There will be no fee.
