'Agriculture Resources That Are Not Your Grandmother’s Book List'

Welcome to 21st century agriculture resources! Where cutting edge information is at your fingertips. We will dig into books and websites to discover their hidden secrets! We will examine books for inspiration then go live on amazing websites to explore resources you never knew were there. In addition, we conduct low-cost, hands-on activities such as Plant Yoga, Wildlife Cookies and DIY Seed Balls. How will you find the information when you get home? A detailed handout provides resources and links. From citizen science to pollinator decline, and soil health to water issues, we cover topics relevant to everybody.
