Earthworks For Cold Climate Water Resiliency, Webinar and Field Day

Curious about how to develop water harvesting features on your property? 

Coen Farms, Adaptive Habitat and AWES will be hosting a two part workshop on how to build and vegetate Earthworks and Water Harvesting features on your property!

Join Takota Coen from Coen Farm and Rob Avis from Verge Permaculture for a 3-day webinar hosted on zoom August 24, 26 and 27, 2020 from 3-6pm. To follow the webinar series, AWES, Takota Coen and partners will also be conducting a 1 day tour and field day September 12, 2020 from 9-4pm at the Coen Farm.

Learn how to design and implement low tech, low cost, nature-based earthworks that can build more effective and efficient water cycles on your land. The webinar series will include a mixture of presentation and activity time, and the field day at Coen Farm will include a farm tour, willow staking, and a ceremony conducted by a Maskwacis Elder. Participants will have an opportunity to observe previously constructed water harvesting earthworks on the farm, including swales, dams and wetlands.

Participants must have attended the webinar series in order to attend the field day.


All mandatory COVID-19 restrictions will be in place for the field day, including maintain social distancing, hand sanitizer provided onsite, and food will not be provided for the day. 


Please register on Eventbrite before August 22, 2020. Cost is $30 for the webinar series, and $40 for the combined webinar and field day.
