10 acres and a dream: Idaho offers workshop for rural landowners
University of Idaho Extension is offering a one day program designed to help owners of small rural acreages manage their land and meet their goals. The program titled “10 Acres and a Dream,” was the idea of Idaho Master Forest Stewards, most of whom are private landowners themselves, and have interacted with a variety of new rural landowners who have struggled with making their dream of owning and tending rural property a reality.
“Ten Acres and a Dream” will be held in Sandpoint, Idaho on March 16, and Hayden, Idaho on March 17. Topics to be covered in the program include: living on the land – a great American tradition; homesteading infrastructure; growing fruits, vegetables, and other crops on small acreages; working with county government; raising large and small livestock and managing pastures on small acreages; and Idaho panhandle forestry fundamentals. The program will conclude with a panel of three University of Idaho master volunteers sharing their Idaho rural living experiences.
Program enrollment is limited to 75 participants per session. Those wishing to participate should pre-register as soon as possible, but no later than March 9. A $15 registration fee includes resource materials and refreshments. For registration questions on the Sandpoint session, contact the University of Idaho Extension office in Bonner county at (208) 263-8511. For registration questions on the Hayden session, contact the University of Idaho Extension in Kootenai County at (208) 446-1680.
