Plan to attend the 29th annual Trenton Woodlot Conference on Friday, November 23, 2018 at the Batawa Community Centre. It is hosted by the Hastings Stewardship Council and partners.
Admission: $40.00 includes hot lunch
The theme this year is Farms and Forests: Living on the Edge. Much of the forest cover in our area is on farms. This forest cover provides important economic and environmental benefits, both locally and to the larger community.
The program features many relevant speakers. Dr. Rene Van Acker, Dean of the Ontario Agricultural College at U. of Guelph, will address the state of farming in Ontario and the relationship of the farming sector to our communities. Susan Willis Chan, instructor in Sustainable Agriculture, will explain how rural landowners can improve the ecological health of their property and gain in overall yield. A highlight of the day is a field trip to the Goodrich-Loomis Conservation Area.
