Workshop offers info

for rural landowners

and small farmers

Oct. 25, 2012 | 0 comments

The Sixth Annual Southeast Wisconsin Rural Landowner Conference scheduled for Saturday, Nov. 3, offers opportunities for rural landowners, small farmers and individuals who are considering a farm enterprise.

Participants can choose from a variety of educational topics from three tracts: small farm, conservation and entrepreneurship.

The small farm tract focuses primarily on fruit crops. Growing strawberries, raspberries, apples and pears will be discussed in addition to a session on beginning beekeeping.

The conservation tract focuses on starting a prairie and invasive species control and includes a panel of local, state and federal government agencies representatives and their programs.

The entrepreneurship tract offers education on marketing options for small farms including starting a CSA (community supported agriculture) and selling at farmers' markets.

A session on selling to customers from your farm will also be offered as well as sessions on growing mushrooms and how to use uncommon vegetables.

A free electronic waste recycling event will be held in conjunction with the conference from 8-11 a.m. Electronic waste includes computers, cell phones, TVs, electronic toys and anything with a cord. Electronic waste will be collected in the parking lot.

The program will be held at the Kenosha County Center in Bristol and will run from 8 a.m.-3 p.m.

Costs for the program are $20 per person and $15 for youth between the ages of 14 and 18. Costs increase by $5 after the October 26 early bird deadline. Lunch is included with the registration fee.

Registration information and the brochure are available at: http://kenosha.uwex.edu/2012/01/12/2012-rural-landowner-conference/.
