Small Farm Management Workshop For Women
Women always played a large part in agriculture, and the trend is coming back! Clay County Extension is sponsoring "Women In Small Farms", a program designed to provide women involved in the operation of a small farm (less than 100 acres) with the knowledge, skills, and abilities to make informed management decisions regarding their business operation. You can also meet and network with other women involved in agriculture. The 4-session class will be held Thursdays, May 4, 11, 18 and 25 from 6-9 p.m. at the Clay County Extension office, 1901 NE 48th Street, Kansas City, Mo. Nathanial Cahill, University of Missouri Agricultural Business Specialist, will teach the class. The fee is $60 and covers all course materials and refreshments. Register by calling the Clay County Extension office at (816) 407-3490. PRINT FLYER. For more information about course content or special accommodations, contact Nathanial Cahill at (660) 747-3193 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
4-H SPIN Clubs New Option For Young People
A 4-H SPIN Club is a special interest club where five or more young people learn about a topic of interest. Topics vary and include interests such as nature, heritage arts, science, photography, gardening, shooting sports, and more. SPIN clubs are led by volunteers who have a passion and want to share their knowledge with young people. We are looking for adults that have a talent or interest that they are willing to teach to young people in local communities. We are planning now for SPIN clubs that will meet in the next 3-6 months. SPIN clubs are planned around the volunteers availability. Have a positive impact on the next generation of young people in your community by sharing your experience and knowledge in a subject area you are passionate about. Contact Emily Reiersgaard, Clay County 4-H Youth Development Specialist, at (816) 407-3490 or email email@example.com. SPIN Club flyer (PDF)
