Cornell Cooperative Extension will host a Farm Open House at Burley Berries for Military Veterans who are curious about, aspiring to be or are currently farming. Active and Retired Veterans and their families are encouraged to attend.
Quite often we (gardeners) are content to plant once and reap our rewards. Consider planting twice this year and getting twice the harvest with many early maturing vegetable varieties.
This day-long conference, which is a follow-up to last year’s Grasstravaganza, will highlight the use of cover crops for grazing and improving soil health.
In addition to what you'll find here on our website, we offer free or low-cost workshops on topics that range from how to start an organic garden to making a home spending plan. Explore our links, check out our upcoming events, then give us a call or visit our Cooperative Extension Education Centers to learn more. We're here to help, with information -- and people -- you can trust!
