Pollination Workshop at Williams Farm

060915 Pollination 1On June 6th ALT held a Farmer Outreach Workshop at the Williams Farm. Our Farmer Outreach Workshops are targeted towards underserved farmers in Athens area. Underserved farmers are individuals and groups who have not participated in or have recieved benefits from the USDA or NRCS programs, which may improve their quality of life, and/or the environment. In addition to educating farmers on a number of different topics through our workshops, we work with them to help apply for NRCS funding and other benefits. This week’s workshop featured special guest Jennifer Anderson, NRCS Native Plant Specialist, and our topic was attracting pollinators using native plants. After the class, Farmer Dana Blanton led a tour of the Williams Farm.
