Fall Forest Farming Workshop


Saturday, November 11th, 2023

2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.

Forest Farming Workshop  | 40 S. Second St., Hartsburg, MO 65039

Are you a landowner or producer blessed with a patch of Missouri Wilderness? Looking to add additional streams of farm income while ensuring future generations have access to native forest edibles and medicinal herbs?

Grow your knowledge of forest farming to support greater farm diversity and enhance our shared ecosystem by joining our Forest Farming Beginners Workshop, Sat Nov 11th at 2 pm central time. Presentations will cover an overview of a successful forest farming operation and discuss market opportunities, including considerations for organic certification.

Class size is limited to 25 participants and grant supported by the USDA-NRCS. Pre-registration is free but a suggested donation of $10-20 at check in helps support refreshments and future programs. Please let us know if you preregister and won’t be able to make it  so we can offer your space to another potential forest farmer.
Featured Presenters:
Dr. Sougata Bardhan, Assistant Professor of Forestry & Natural Resource Management at Lincoln University, a historically black 1890 land grant university in Jefferson City Missouri.
