Shoshone Irrigation District



Shake
Rattle
and Roll!
Last week I had the opportunity to tour the Shoshone Irrigation District with Beryl Churchill. What a treat for this former farmer!

Not only did I learn about the structure and history of the canal system, but also I learned the history of the Churchill family homestead. The quality production agriculture surrounding the NWC campus is the result of years of TLC by the Churchills. It was great to spend the morning with Beryl. The best part...she taught me how to set a siphon tube!
I have been watching my neighbor Perry Fisher from my kitchen window all summer but hadn't got up the courage to ask him to teach me because I figured he would probably put me to work. Thanks Beryl!!
