Randy Martin, CASWCD executive director and proprietor of The King’s Gardener farm and greenhouses of Presque Isle, will share his 30 years of experience with greenhouse and high tunnel production.

“The first day of the workshop we will erect a high tunnel frame and cover the pros and cons of many construction techniques for here in the far North,” said Martin. “The second day will be devoted to cultural practices inside the high tunnel with an emphasis on water requirements, timing, shading, soil health and pest management.”

MAINE, Van Buren CD – Coming up this Friday will be a presentation by the Van Buren Conservation District on how to manage forests on private property. The SWxSW Corner CISMA’s Eleanor Serocki tells WSJM News the goal is to help people manage their “back 40.”

“I’ll be speaking on invasive species that we find in forests and how to protect our woods from them,” Serocki said. “Kyle Mead here at the district office will be talking about the MAEAP program and how you can enroll your forest. We have a speaker who is going to be discussing the Qualified Forest Program, which can actually lead to some tax breaks.”
