Have you considered Backyard Food Production?

The Carroll Soil and Water Conservation District will be rolling out our Backyard Food Production program throughout the spring and early summer of this year. We hope to encourage the utilization of your backyard or unused green space for food production while creating wildlife habitat and conserving natural resources. We have put together a series of workshops for people with who love the outdoors and wish to maximize the potential of their property. This is a new program for us and will include several workshops covering topics such as: seed propagation, garden layout and crop rotations, rain barrels, drip irrigation systems, composting/mulching, raised beds, pollinator gardens and much more. Many of the projects we will be discussing make great family activities and will afford the opportunity to get kids interested in food production and natural resources. Lots of communities have adopted these food production methods in their schools, community gardens, parks and other public spaces. If you would like to receive information about these workshops, please call us or send us an email so that we can include your name in our mailing list for the program. We hope everyone is as excited about this program as we are, and we look forward to seeing you at our workshops this spring!
