Smithville Christian High School visits the vineyard.
The team welcomed a local high school class to learn about OSCIII research in the vineyard. Alysha (pictured below) gave the class a crash course on insect trapping methods. Educating the upcoming generation on sustainable farming practices and research is an important part of the project!

Sharing research with OMAFRA
The team met with Kathryn Carter and Anne Verhallen of OMAFRA for reciprocal visits of one another’s research sites. Our OSCIII project involves below vine cover cropping, as does Kathryn and Annes. Pictured is crimson clover thriving under the vine at our OSCIII research site.
