Learn land evaluation tools on 3/14
Farmers and landowners: are you looking at a piece of property to buy or lease, but not sure if it fits your plans? Are you getting to know your land and trying to figure out how to work with it best? Join us on March 14 at Fernbrook Farm CSA to learn how to evaluate soil, plant, and wildlife communities on farmland with representatives from the Natural Resources Conservation Service. We'll look at web-based tools and walk the farm to exercise our powers of observation. If the soils isn't frozen, we'll dig a soil pit! We'll end the workshop with a networking session and discussion on land leasing. More info.
