Pasture walk series begins July 11

This summer’s pasture walk series begins July 11, from 5–7 p.m., at Farm in the Woods, 245 Steward Road, Monson. Farm co-owner Gretchen Huettner will host. University of Maine Cooperative Extension, Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association and the Maine Grass Farmers Network sponsor the series.

Pasture walks are designed to be a peer-to-peer learning experience. Experienced graziers share their knowledge while walking through their pastures and explaining their management styles. Participants learn new techniques, and also share their experiences and challenges in managing a productive pasture system.

The event is free; an optional potluck dinner will follow the walk. For more information or to request a reasonable accommodation, contact Richard Kersbergen, 207.342.5971,

The next pasture walk will be July 25 at Wolfe’s Neck Center for Agriculture and the Environment in Freeport. A complete listing of pasture walks this summer is online.
