Calling all Illinois-based ag educators who provide services in the Embarras watershed!
We’re partnering with the University of Illinois Extension, The Land Connection, and the Champaign County Soil & Water Conservation District to offer an online educational series to provide you with a broad understanding of the ins and outs of regenerative grazing and how you can help producers integrate regenerative grazing into their operations.
Space is limited! This program is designed to create a cohort of motivated individuals exploring regenerative grazing together. To encourage rich discussion and provide space for participants to create deep, lasting connections in their professional networks, capacity is limited to 15 participants. The application (available at the link below) requires basic information about yourself, a self-assessment of your knowledge of natural resources and agricultural practices, and several short answer questions.
