Join Cultivating Connections for this Building a Stronger Bitterroot event at Cultivating Connections with guest speaker and Bitterroot Farmer Leon Stangl.

Leon will share what he has learned about building healthy soils in the Bitterroot Valley to promote moisture retention, and create greater biodiversity. He also will encourage you to think differently about weeds. In the long haul he wants to save you time, money and labor while increasing your yields with ecologically responsible methods.

Bring Your Questions! Some of the topics he can address: soil structure, soil fertility, composting, use of redworms, irrigation solutions, pest management, pasture viability, season extenders, livestock, fencing, growing vegetables, berries and medicinal herbs.

See you there.

-Bristol, Cobey, and Laura- the Building A Stronger Bitterroot Team

Building A Stronger Bitterroot is a way for us to gather as a community, share knowledge, build our collective capacity, and move our valley forward toward a more resilient future

More about our Speaker, Leon Stangl: Leon grew up in northwest Iowa and actively participated on a large farm; helping to raise hogs, cattle, chickens, as well as grow commodity crops. In that time he learned to fix just about anything with a screwdriver and a pair of pliers, weld, operate machinery and problem solve. Since living in Montana he has been a forest service firefighter, fly fishing guide, landscaping crew manager, computer systems operator, horse ranch manager, and farm manager at a seed company. He started his own farming business in 2005. He has over 45 years of experience growing produce and raising livestock. Since 2016 he has been teaching classes on how to grow a successful garden in the Bitterroot Valley. Leon has been encouraged to use his skills to help others find successful and practical ways to grow food and manage lands. He emphasizes sustainable methods to build soil, retain moisture and optimize production.
