Free Knowledge!

June 13, 2012

I received in the mail this week several copies of SARE’s books, Managing Cover Crops Profitably, Building Soils for Better Crops , and Building a Sustainable Business. Please let me know if you would like a copy for your office. You can email me at heatherf@uark.edu to get a copy. All of these are excellent, well-researched books!

This week I also received a package from Chelsea Green Publishing with a DVD and handbook on business information for organic farmers called Business Advice for Organic Farmers DVD and The Organic Farmers’ Business Handbook. I’ve only quickly perused the book but it looks very good. Even though it has “organic” in the title, I suspect it is a book that would be useful for conventional producers as well. If you are interested in getting a free copy for your office, contact Darrell Koerner, dkoerner@chelseagreen.com, for more information. I could see these being very useful in grower workshops!

National Center for Appropriate Technology NCAT will be hosting a webinar on renewable energy tomorrow, June 14, 2012 at noon called “Returns on Renewable Energy”. From the flyer I received …“Participants will learn how to find local resources to help with their renewable-energy buying decisions and equipment selection, as well as how to work with renewable-energy equipment suppliers. Participants also will get valuable information about available sources of funding: grants, loan guarantees, and tax credits available for installation of renewable-energy systems.” To register for the webinar: https://attra.ncat.org/riskreturn If you can’t join the webinar but are still interested in the information, I suspect (but don’t know for sure) that the webinar will be posted online within a couple of days. So, I hope you jump on these opportunities for some free information!
