LYONS, NEBRASKA - Beginning Latino and other beginning farmers across Nebraska are invited to learn about and discuss soil health and conservation practices during a series of online workshops, “Soil Health Learning Circles,” hosted by the Center for Rural Affairs.

This free workshop series will take place online weekly, starting Monday, April 25, and will run through Monday, June 13, from 6 to 7 p.m.

“Each discussion will feature presenters on soil health and soil conservation topics for your farm, such as cover crops and pollinator strips,” said Lucia Schulz, community organizing associate for the Center. “We'll cover everything from Natural Resources and Conservation Service programs to soil health practices, rotational grazing, and more.”

The presentations will be offered in English and Spanish.

Registration is required. Sign up and view the weekly schedule at cfra.org/events. For more information, contact Schulz at lucias@cfra.org or 402.380.7006.

This project is funded by a U.S. Department of Agriculture Nebraska Resources Conservation Service grant.
