Seminar offered on putting small acreage to work

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 to get started is the question. University of Illinois Extension is sponsoring a series of workshops on a variety of topics to help people who have a few acres learn ways they that they can put them to use.

Putting Small Acres to Work workshops will be offered between Jan. 26 and March 16 at locations throughout Illinois. Topics will include vegetable production, sheep and goats, timber management, high tunnel production, food preservation, making money from woodlands, pond management, bees, and cut flower and herb production.

The first workshop will be held Jan. 26 at Kishwaukee College in Malta.

Each workshop costs $30 per person or $40 per couple, which includes lunch and materials. Details and registration are available online at http://web.extension.illinois.edu/smallfarm/psaw.cfm or by contacting Cavanaugh-Grant at 217-968-5512 or cvnghgrn@illinois.edu.
