At 10:30, we’ll move upstream to Todd Bates Farm in Embudo, NM, next to the Rio Grande where the Bloom to Boom research project is centered. We’ll have snacks here and continue our discussion in the field. It looks like we are going to be in full bloom next Friday, so everyone has the opportunity to help us gather useful data.
