PBS “Washington Grown” filming

Watch your TV scheduling in January! Grant County Conservation District (GCCD) hosted the Washington Grown Film Crew along with Washington State Soil Health Committee to film the exciting work being done with Cover Crops on the Gies Farm south of Moses Lake. Dale Gies and Sons, Joe and Mike, have been doing cutting edge research on the use of cover crops for biological control of soil born diseases and pests that are the plague of potato growers in the Columbia Basin.

Washington Grown moderator Tomas Guzman does a great job interviewing Dale Gies and Harold Crose, associate supervisor with GCCD, along with member of the Washington State Soil Health committee, Lynn Bahrych, on this cutting edge work. It’s always exciting to highlight the great work being done by farmers in the Columbia Basin and your Conservation District. Set your calendars, you don’t want to miss this show.
