Living On A Few Acres Conference

Living on a Few Acres Conference

"Maybe a little less, maybe a little more."

Plan to attend this informative annual conference held on March 10, 2018 at the Deschutes County Fair & Expo Center in Redmond. Improve your knowledge and acquire new skills by taking courses taught by experts in a variety of subjects. There is something for everyone, from urban gardeners and hobby farmers to ranch and farm business owners.

This educational experience, presented by the Oregon State University Extension Service, is a successful collaboration of many Central Oregon agencies, sponsors, vendors and volunteers.

Join us this year and learn more about the following topics: Food safety from garden to kitchen, pressure canning, beginning beekeeping, enhancing wildlife habitat on your land, wildlife intervention strategies, weed management, soil information, pasture management, growing hay, raising livestock and poultry, water rights, new irrigation projects from COID, use and calibration of backpack and ATV-mounted sprayers, irrigation system maintenance and cost share ideas, and many more!
