Proper irrigation is the backbone of any successful and scale-able farm. We are installing over 2,000 feet of 2 inch and 1.5 inch underground irrigation lines to support the Growing a Future school farm. This system will cover almost three acres with 29 unique irrigation heads and 6 shutoff valves. At 60 psi, our irrigation system will be able to meet the overhead, drip and indirect irrigation requirements for our produce, trees, berries and pollinator garden. A special thanks to Veneta Rentals (trencher) and Ken Graton (irrigation consultant) for their support and help with this vital system.
Below are a few images of the trenching and irrigation lines being installed that will allow us to reach and support all areas of the school farm.
