Wildflower Meadows for Pollinators
(07:00 PM - 08:30 PM)

Native bees and honey bees, alike, are suffering from a lack of food and forage habitat. Bees rely on a continuous source of quality pollen and nectar to feed themselves and their brood. By planting wildflower meadows, we can help provide bees with the flowering habitat they need for survival. Amy Papineau, UNH Cooperative Extension Field Specialist in Food & Agriculture, will discuss the many threats to the health of our native bee and honey bee populations and the steps involved in planting and maintaining a long-lived, diverse wildflower meadow to support our local pollinators.

Fall Wildflower Nature Walk - Weeks State Park Event
(01:00 PM - 04:00 PM)

 

This can be a great time of year to get outdoors and enjoy a walk in the woods.  The Weeks State Park Association is offering a free wildflower walk in the park.  We will discover the wildflowers and other signs of nature in the park with the aid of naturalist, Matt Peters.

Matt is an independent ecologist and botanist with extensive field experience in diverse North American landscapes from Alaska and the Great Plains to the forests of the northeast. His work focuses on botanical and natural resource inventory, mapping, and management in northern New England. He leads workshops on foraging, edible wild plants and plant identification. In his home community of Plainfield, VT, he is involved in local river conservation efforts, serving on the town's Flood Management Advisory Committee and other non-profit boards. Matt's past work has included researching native grassland restoration practices, and assessing the impacts of industrial forestry and rangeland management practices.

Participants should meet at the main entrance of Weeks State Park at 1 PM. Bring raingear just in case and suitable clothing and footwear for an easy walk in the Park.

Seed Saving for the Home Gardener
(06:30 PM - 08:00 PM)

By saving seed from your home vegetable or flower garden, you can help maintain genetic biodiversity, perpetuate heirloom varieties, or even develop your own unique variety through controlled pollinations. Seed saving can also be simply a fun way to grow your own seeds for next year's garden. Whatever your motivation may be, an understanding of the biology and science of seed production will help ensure that your efforts result in a harvest of quality seed. Amy Papineau, UNHCE Field Specialist, Food & Agriculture, will discuss the basics of growing plants for seed, seed extraction and collection methods, and specifics for many common garden plants through hands-on demonstration.

Build Your Grazing Plan
(10:00 AM - 03:00 PM)

 

Build Your Own Grazing Plan Kick Off and Orientation

 

This 7-week class will be primarily conducted through an online learning program with three in-person sessions from September 16 through October 31. It is designed for farms that graze ruminant animals (cows, sheep, goats, and camelids) and want to maximize their pasture production through managed grazing.

 

We will take you through the process of writing a grazing plan. As a participant, you will complete the class with a functional grazing plan for YOUR farm and understand the principles behind it. This allows you to make changes to your plan when needed. Additionally, we will be writing these plans to include all the criteria needed for submission to NH NRCS for assistance through the EQIP program.

 

The class will be self-paced with online assignments to be completed each week. Daimon Meeh will be available with online office hours to assist with any questions. We will be using an online learning system similar in structure to an online forum, and it is our intent that there will be helpful interactions between the participants during the class.

 

The class schedule begins September 16 and runs as follows: Week 1: Mapping the Farm; Week 2: Finding Your Soil Types; Week 3: Forage Inventory; Week 4: Animal Nutritional Needs; Week 5: Developing Rotation Plan and Fencing Class; Week 6: Goal Setting and Implementation Schedule; Week 7: Operation Maintenance Plan. There will also be three in person meetings: Sept. 16 from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. - Kick off and Orientation at the NH Audubon Center, 84 Silk Farm Road in Concord; Oct. 2 from 5 to 7 p.m. - Forage Identification and Inventory at Normanton Farms, 226 Charles Bancroft Hwy in Litchfield; and Oct. 15 from 5 to 7 p.m. - Fencing Options, also at Normanton Farms.
