Multi-County New Landowner Series – Rural Laws and Codes

  • Friday, September 18, 2015
  • 1:30 PM - 5:00 PM
  • TBD

The Multi-County New Landowner Education program is a series of 9 informational meetings, seminars, and field days designed to make new landowners in Austin, Colorado, Fayette, & Washington Counties aware of what types of agricultural enterprises are best for their property. Participants in the program will hear from experts in a variety of fields in agriculture about the best management practices that they can implement on their own property.  This innovative program assists new landowners in understanding the concepts of rural living.  Participants in the program are given exposure to ideas on raising livestock and horses, plant identification, fence building, applying pesticides, soil testing, stock pond management, pond construction, fruit and nut production, rain water harvesting, turf management, and much more. The program also serves as a way for new residents of the four counties to network and meet new people in their communities, find out what can be done on their land, what operations can be profitable, and possibly what opportunities they have to serve the community.

 

The program is held on the third Friday of the months of January through May and August through November. Each month’s meeting will be held at different locations in one of the four counties. The meetings begin at 1:30 pm and will last between 4 and 5 hours depending on the topic and possible tour stops. The cost for the program series is $125.00 per person or $200.00 per couple for all nine meetings or $20.00 per person per meeting. CEU’s for pesticide applicators will be offered as they are applicable, and refreshments will be served at each program session. Participants will receive a notebook at the beginning of the series to fill as we progress through the program with handouts and reference material that will be useful as they move forward with improvements on their property.
