Badger Mountain Vineyard offers Renewable Energy Farm Walk

April 25 @ 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Bill Powers planted Badger Mountain Vineyard in Kennewick, Washington.

KENNEWICK, Wash. – Learn about the solar energy installation that provides power to the Badger Mountain Vineyard in Washington’s Columbia Valley through its Renewable Energy Farm Walk on Monday, April 25.

In 1988, Badger Mountain Vineyard converted to 100 percent organic viticulture, and in 1990 became the first Certified Organic winegrape vineyard in Washington state. Badger Mountain uses only organically approved and naturally occurring substances for all vineyard applications, meaning no chemical insecticides, herbicides, fungicides or synthetic fertilizers.

Join us to learn how Badger Mountain extends its commitment to sustainability through the use of solar energy with presentations and a tour of the solar energy system.

Presentations and tour will include:
• Badger Mountain Vineyard
• Sonia Hall, Washington State University’s Center for Sustaining Agriculture and Natural Resources
• Monica Cisneros, Umpqua Bank
• Jonathan Lewis, Hire Electric
• Roni Baer, USDA
• Mia Devine, Project Manager, Northwest SEED

Free to attend and lunch is provided. Pre-registration is required to receive a lunch.

Register online or by telephone at (206) 632-7506.

This farm walk is presented by Northwest SEED and Tilth Producers of Washington, and is sponsored through an Environmental Justice Grant from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
