Putting a few extra acres to work can bring in additional income, provide an opportunity to experiment with a new enterprise, or develop an interest or hobby for its educational or entertainment value. How do you get started? To help answer this question and learn more, attend the workshop, Putting Small Acres to Work, which will be held on Saturday, January 18. at Kishwaukee College Conference Center.
To help you develop new ideas to profit from your small acres, attend the two general sessions and choose one breakout session. “Year Round Growing” with Mary Brubach of Susie’s Garden Patch will share how to maximize markets by extending the growing season by using high tunnels. “Organic Vegetable Production” with Grant McCarty, University of Illinois Extension Local Foods and Small Farms Educator will help you learn new ideas for how to prepare for growing vegetables organically. Additionally, you can choose between Soil Management and Sheep & Goat Production for a breakout session, both presented by University of Illinois Extension Educators.
