Things are finally beginning to dry out a little bit on the Kerr Center farm and ranch.
Two important dates are coming up next week:
On Thursday, June 25, the FREE pasture plant identification workshop runs from 6:30 to 8:30.
The next day, June 26, is the last day to register for the water & livestock workshop on July 11.
The pollinator workshop earlier this month was a big hit. If you missed it, you can still catch a recap both in this issue and on our website.
As always, if you value our work, please also consider supporting it!Field Notes – June 2015
