SARE: Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education
Tri-State SARE Professional Development Project
A collaborative effort among the Universities of Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island
Stay tuned for upcoming event announcements!
This is what we are doing right now:
Over the last three years this project taught participants how to write a grazing plan and shared information on how farmers can develop and manage soils in their pasture. Hands-on field workshops have illustrated the value of healthy soil and the management practices farmers can implement on their land.
This year, webinars and field workshops addressed nutrient management within a pasture system tying it back to the soil health perspective taught previously.
We are presently developing our project curriculum for our next three-year project. Topics under consideration include enhanced pasture/grazing management, animal nutrition, and product quality.
For over 14 years we have offered webinars, in-person workshops, and livestock education for service providers and farmers. Programming focuses on raising healthy animals and the development & sustainable use of pasture. The 2023-26 project will continue to cover topics of interest to service providers and farmers.
