The Multi-County New Landowner Education program is a series of 8 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 best management practices that can be implemented on their own property.
The next New Landowner Program will take place on August 18, 2017 at the Washington County Fairgrounds, 1305 E. Blue Bell Road in Brenham. Registration begins at 1:00pm and the cost is $20 per person if you have not signed up for the entire series. The August program will discuss tree management, common problems with trees in our area, and how to care for trees. We will also discuss beekeeping for beginners: “What you need to know before getting into bees”. CEUs will be available, although how many is still to be determined. For more information: 979-732-2082
