AUSTIN -- Three program sessions for people interested in producing agricultural crops on small-acreage sites will be held during October and November at the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office in Travis County. The office is located at 1600-B Smith Road in southeast Austin. Program sessions will be from 8:30 a.m. until 5 p.m. on Thursdays, Oct. 25, Nov. 1, and Nov. 8.

The program will cover vegetable and crop production, as well as how to plan, manage, and find resources and possible funding to help support a small-scale farming operation.

The Oct. 25 session will address planning a small-scale farming operation and include a presentation and field tour at certified organic Green Gate Farms.

The Nov. 1 session will cover vegetable production, recommended fruit crops, insect and disease management, and permaculture basics.

The Nov. 8 session will focus on programs and resources available to the small-acreage farmer, plus provide information on zoning, soil surveys, organic certification, and grant writing.

Instruction will be given by AgriLife Extension personnel and representatives of other agencies, including the Texas Department of Agriculture and the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Natural Resources Conservation Service.

Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units in the general and/or integrated pest management categories will be available for pesticide licensees attending the sessions.

Cost is $50 per session or $100 for all three.

To register, go to the AgriLife Extension Conference Services website at http://bit.ly/wRww9D. To register, contact Daphne Richards, AgriLife Extension agent for horticulture in Travis County, at 512-854-9600 or drichards@ag.tamu.edu.
