2013-2014 Workshop Series Getting the Most out of Small Acreage
Putting a few extra acres to work can bring in additional income, provide an opportunity to experiment with a new enterprise, or develop an interest or hobby for its educational or entertainment value. How to get started is the question.
University of Illinois Extension sponsored a series of workshops (November 2, 2013 - March 29, 2014) to help cultivate ideas on how to develop and manage a small farm entity.

Workshops were held on the following dates:
Each workshop had a unique agenda (see Local Resources and Information below).
