Farmers Resource Network Webinar Series Begins Friday

The Maine Farmers Resource Network is sponsoring a webinar series this spring. The first webinar will be held Friday, April 26, from 10 to 11 am via Zoom. 

The focus of the webinar series is “Risk Risk Risk … strategies on how to think ahead on your farm!” Subjects will include land transitioning, land access planning, risk mitigation, and climate resilience. The webinars will feature farmers, as well as representatives from UMaine Cooperative Extension, UNH Extension, Maine Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Forestry (DACF), Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS), and more.

Friday’s webinar will be “Farm Practices for Managing Water.” This webinar will focus on soil health and engineering practices that can help farmers mitigate the negative effects of too much water. Participants will learn an overview of techniques, along with important considerations for implementing these practices, and will see how a Maine farm has employed some of these methods to fit the scale and goal of their farm.
