Conference Focuses on Funding and Farming Opportunities for Northern Illinois Producers
The Funding and Farming Opportunities for Northern Illinois Producers conference will address cover crops, conservation leases, funding opportunities, and much more. The in-person event will take place at the Center for Agrarian Learning, McHenry County College, on February 24, 2022.
The conference’s hyper-local approach will provide northern Illinois farmers and producers unique access to a range of topics geared specifically to them, delivering information they might not easily find at other events. Expert panelists and presenters will share insights and techniques on implementing in-field conservation practices and farmland protection, along with information on supportive funding opportunities.
There is no cost to participants to attend, but advanced registration is required. A light breakfast and lunch will be provided. Register at https://farmfoundation.swoogo.com/northernillinoisfarming.
