Workshop for Local Horse Owners Highlights Going Green!

The Resource Conservation District and Ecology Action announce the return of Livestock and Land, a program aimed at improving water quality through good land stewardship on livestock properties.  The program is made possible through a grant from the State Water Resources Control Board and funds education, technical assistance, and cost-share funding for land improvements on private property that help improve the environment.

An all-day workshop for horse owners titled Combat Mud, Conquer Manure, Go Green is being held Saturday, February 26th, 2011 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM at the Aptos Academy on Bonita Drive in Aptos. The cost for the workshop is $10/family and includes lunch and all workshop materials.

The Convention begins with the CCOF Annual Meeting and welcoming reception featuring organic products from throughout the Ventura/Oxnard area. This year’s Convention agenda focuses on bringing your products to market and expanding the organic marketplace. Gain valuable knowledge that you can apply immediately on your farm or operation and in your marketing plan. Enjoy networking with other organic producers, processors, handlers, and supporting industries.
