Meadow management workshop

May 24, 2014

Rockport — Extension Professor Richard Kersbergen will lead a pasture and meadow management workshop at Merryspring Nature Center Saturday, June 7, from 10 a.m. until noon.

Many landowners in Maine have large fields and former pastures as part of their property. This workshop will explore how to manage them for a variety of purposes, including livestock pasturing, forage production and wildlife habitat. Kersbergen will cover a number of different topics such as soil health, forages, and grass management to make the most out of open land. This workshop also provides guests with the opportunity to learn about Merryspring’s own North Meadow restoration plan.

Kersbergen is a sustainable dairy and forage systems educator with the University of Maine Cooperative Extension based in Waldo County. He is also a cooperating research scientist with the New England Plant, Soil, and Water Lab.

The cost of this workshop is $5 for Merryspring members and $10 for non-members. Registration is limited to 20 participants. To sign up, please contact Merryspring at 236-2239 or
