Whole Farm Planning for Beginning Women Farmers
(09:00 AM - 03:30 PM)

This course is for women who are in the first 10 years of farming.  It is most effective for farmers who have been in production for at least a year or two, but women planning a farming operation have also found it helpful.  It is not a course on production, rather on whole farm planning.  Participants will meet for ten sessions on topics that include goal setting, financial, business, marketing, land and infrastructure planning, soil fertility, and planned grazing.  Participants are provided with a mentor and a network of other beginning women farmers.  This program is offered in collaboration with Holistic Management International, and Small and Beginner Farmers of New Hampshire.

(07:00 PM - 08:30 PM)

 

March Weekly Series

Like a Pebble in a Pond:
Ripples of Land Use Changes Over Time
The histories of farming, forests, wildlife and people are entwined in the northeast. The impact of land use change will continue to ripple through the future of our farms, forests, wildlife and people who depend upon them. This winter, our annual lecture series examines landscape history and land use change – by both looking back and considering what may lie ahead.

 

Week 4

Oh to Be Young Again: An Aging Forest Means Trouble for Some NH Wildlife
Jim Oehler, State Lands Habitat Biologist, New Hampshire Fish and Game Dept.
The landscape of northeastern and north central states has changed. One big difference is the amount of land now covered with houses, roads, and other development. Another, more-subtle transition has also taken place: We have more mature forest today than we did 50 years ago. Many wildlife species do not live in mature woods. Populations including wood turtle, indigo bunting, New England cottontail, and bobcat have declined. No fewer than 65 reptiles, birds, and mammals – all of which need young forest – have been designated species of greatest conservation need in the Northeast. Learn how the partners in the Young Forest Project are working to change this trend.
