Keyline Planning and Implementation Field Day

Keyline plowing is a method to improve both water infiltration and distribution at the landscape level.  The method uses a Yeoman’s plow to create deep (20”) channels in the soil while limiting soil surface disturbance.  Keyline plowing is part of a landscape design approach developed in Australia in the 1950s by P.A. Yeoman to address erosion and drought challenges.  While it has been used extensively in other contexts, it has had limited application in our high elevation, semi-arid landscape.

Join us for a one-day workshop on Keyline planning, design and implementation at the C-B Ranch, located 8 miles north of Lindrith, NM.  The workshop will provide an introduction to the mapping, design, and layout process and implementation of a 10-acre Keyline project.   We will also address the use of consumer drones for creating detailed maps of project areas and discuss other strategies for creating drought adapted landscapes. 

Participants will be provided lunch and an early dinner at the ranch.

This field day is part of the Seeding Regenerative Agriculture Project, made possible thanks to generous funding from the Santa Fe Community Foundation and the New Mexico Foundation. The workshop is hosted in partnership with the NM Healthy Soil Working Group.

NOTE: GPS can't yet navigate to the C-B Ranch, so registrants will be emailed a detailed map and directions before the event.
