Online farming programs open

LANSING – A growing number of new farms are appearing across the state of Michigan. Many people starting these farm businesses, or considering it, are new to farming. Others have experience, but are getting started with a new agricultural enterprise. Either way, the 2014 MSU Extension Beginning Farmer Webinar Series will provide convenient, online learning opportunities in a variety of topics for the beginner.

The series is kicking off with a set of weekly webinars running from Jan. 20 through early April. Each program begins at 7 p.m. and will last 1-2 hours.

Each webinar is a separate program with registration available at http://msue.anr.msu.edu/ as the webinar date draws nearer. Click ‘search all events’ and scroll through the programs listed by date to find the webinar programs you are interested in.

A $10 fee is charged for each program, and a high-speed internet connection is required.

Contact the Alger County MSU Extension office at (906) 387-2530 or msue.alger@county.msu.edu.
