Randy and Linda Naeve of Nature Road Farm host this field day focused on collecting and reusing rainwater from a newly constructed high tunnel. The water is stored in tanks and pumped through a drip-irrigation system to the rest of the one-and-a-quarter-acre farm. This system is based on a Leopold Center-funded project being conducted at the ISU Armstrong Research and Demonstation Farm.
