New Landowners #4- Fruit Trees, Pecans and Citrus
August 27 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm
The Multi-County New Landowner Education program is a series of informational meetings, seminars, and field days designed to make new/small landowners in Grimes & Waller Counties aware of what types of agricultural enterprises are best for their property. Participants in the program will hear from experts in a variety of fields in agriculture about best management practices that can be implemented on their own property. This innovative program assists new landowners in understanding the concepts of rural living. Participants in the program are given exposure to ideas on raising livestock and horses, plant identification, applying pesticides, soil testing, stock pond management, pond construction, and much more. The program also serves as a way for new residents of the two counties to network and meet new people in their communities, find out what can be done on their land, what operations can be successful, and possibly what opportunities they have to serve the community.
