Do you ever drive by the USDA Service Center or the K-State Research and Extension Office and wonder what they do in there? Do you ever have a question, but aren’t sure where to turn? What about wanting to improve your operation, and needing some financial assistance to help with the cost? Chances are these offices have the ability to help.
On Jan. 12, at the Haas Building at the Pawnee County Fairgrounds, Women on the Farm will address these questions. This workshop will start at 12:30 p.m. with a free will lunch.
Staff from the FSA, NRCS, Conservation District, and K-State Research and Extension will be present to talk about what these offices do and opportunities that you could take advantage of in your farming operation as well as in your personal lives. All of the entities will spend some time on programs that are offered and the resources that are available to help. We will also spend time answering specific questions that you may have.
Women on the Farm is a group that gathers quarterly to increase their awareness on issues that could affect the farming operation. Women need not be the person in charge of the farm to participate. Women are involved on the farm in many facets. Whether you just do the books, runs errands when necessary or are involved in the everyday decisions, the goal is to become better educated as well as build a community of people that have a tie to the farm.
RSVP by Jan. 6th. Register on Facebook or call the Rush County Conservation District at 785-222-2615. There is no fee for the workshop.
