Purdue Extension has posted its 2015 annual report online, highlighting the ways in which its many programs educated and empowered millions of people throughout Indiana and helped promote economic vitality statewide.
This year's Purdue Extension Indiana Small Farm Conference begins with a series of preconference workshops on direct marketing, woodland management, hops cultivation and other topics. The daylong workshops will be offered March 3, a day before the conference opens at the Hendricks County Fairgrounds in Danville. Extension and industry experts will lead each workshop.
Purdue Extension's Local Foods Program is continuing to help farmers markets improve their marketing and better understand government regulations through the Indiana Farmers Market Forum. The event, formerly known as Farmers Market Boot Camp, will be held 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Feb. 19 at the Indiana Farm Bureau Building, 225 S. East St., Indianapolis.
