Accessing Soil, Leasing Land and Working with What You Got
July 26 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFREE
MOFGA’s Farm Training Project (FTP) workshops are designed for apprentices, Journeypeople, farmworkers and other beginning farmers. They follow an informal format including a farm tour and conversation on the topic of the day. All events are free but require registration.
Join the farmers of Sound Pine Farm on their leased land in Brunswick, ME, as well as Land for Good’s Maine’s field agent and the Maine Department of Agriculture’s state soil scientist for a farm tour focused on soil assessment. We will discuss the land search process and how to consider farming soils in this process. We will discuss how to work with what you got, soil health principles, and managing fertility while leasing land.
For questions call 207-568-4142 or email MOFGA’s Beginning Farmer Program Specialist, Bo Dennis, at [email protected].
This workshop is eligible for travel reimbursement. At the end of the Farm Training Project calendar, a mileage reimbursement form will be sent to all participants.
