Event Description

AGROFORESTRY WORKSHOP

Friday, June 15th at Reedsville Volunteer Fire Co.

7740 SR 655 South Reedsville, PA

Registration starts at 8:30 program from 9:00 to 3:30

 

Woodland value may not always be measured by the quality of timber. There are untapped treasures in the forest that can be managed and cultivated. These non-timber forest products can bring forest landowners some additional enjoyment and possible income. On June 15, the PA Bureau of Forestry, Community Partnerships RC&D, and the Mifflin County Conservation District will be hosting an Agroforestry Workshop from 9:00AM - 3:30PM at the Reedsville Volunteer Fire Company banquet hall. Registration starts at 8:30 am. A $5.00 fee will include lunch and handouts. There will be information presented about Diversifying Farm Income, Edible and Medicinal Plants, Mushroom Propagation, Tree Syrup Production, Multi-function Riparian Buffer plantings, small batch Charcoal Production and PA Forest Grown - Certified Organic. Preregistration is required by June 5th. For more information or register please contact the Mifflin County Conservation District at 717-248-4695 X 3148 or ddunmire@mifflinccd.com.
