The Green Acreages Guide Workshop: Stewardship for Small Acreages

March 6th, 2019 – Wellington Resource Centre, Clairmont, AB 

Make the most of your rural property and become a better steward!

Did you know that good land management practices can protect your investment in your acreage, hobby farm or recreational property?

If you are one of approximately 250,000 Albertans who own an acreage, hobby farm or recreational property, you will benefit from attending this workshop. Presenters will teach you how to assess, understand and implement stewardship practices, enabling you to protect the valuable natural assets associated with your land.

Learn what you can do to ensure your property is well managed, productive and attractive. Attend the Green Acreages Guide Workshop hosted and presented by the Mighty Peace Watershed Alliance with materials developed by Land Stewardship Centre and technical expertise provided by local Ag Fieldman.

During the workshop we will cover:

  • The fundamentals of stewardship and sustainability
  • What it means to live on a rural property
  • Setting goals and developing a plan for your property
  • Identifying resources and understanding limitations
  • Monitoring your progress

Registration Fee: $20 per property. This helps cover some of the cost of the workbooks you will be provided at the workshop. The workbooks retail for $35.
