Supporting Pollinators Over Time: How to Maintain Wildflower Diversity May 6 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM PDT /
Integrating habitat onto farms and other landscapes can support pollinators and the pollination services they provide. However, flower-rich plantings often require ongoing management to maintain wildflower diversity for pollinators over time. Come learn about a framework for selecting the most appropriate management techniques, and learn how landowners we work with are managing their pollinator plantings.
This webinar will be recorded and available on our YouTube channel. Closed Captioning will be available during this webinar.

Organic Hemp for Fiber and Meat Chickens on Organic Pasture: Virtual Field Day
5/24/21, 11:00 AM PST
Paris KY, via Zoom
In their 6th season of raising livestock on pasture and their 3rd season of hemp fiber production, Kathleen and Lane Butler are committed to health – of their family, their animals, and their soil. Their love of their community drives them to advocate for local food systems and farmer-to-farmer learning.
Join this virtual visit to Butler Farms, as they share their production experience of growing 40 acres of Certified Organic hemp for Patagonia’s Sustainable Workwear clothing line and thousands of meat chickens on Certified Organic pastures. From planting to harvest, and brooder to customer, we’ll hear their lessons learned, experiences of scaling up, and essential resources and tools for hemp fiber and pastured poultry.
Kathleen will also share cost overviews for both operations to help interested producers in estimating profit range and the viability for these markets on their own farms.
Open to all and FREE to attend. Registration is required.
(Monday) 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
