Hi 4-H Team!
I'm a former equestrian 4-H participant and now I work for local environmental non-profit Daily Acts. We are excited to be hosting our 2nd annual Sustainable Equine Management Workshop, coming up March 3 & 4 in Petaluma. I wasn't sure who exactly who to send this to from your team, but I am looking for help in spreading the word about this workshop to 4-Hers in the region.
Participants will learn practical strategies for sustainable equine management that can save on vet bills, improve horses' mental & physical health, and make chores easier while helping fight climate change and stormwater pollution. Topics will include small acreage pasture management, manure and mud management, natural pest control, chore efficiency, and wildfire planning.
We are flying in Alayne Blickle as our speaker. She is an equine property consultant and founder of the internationally acclaimed program Horses for Clean Water. She's also a life long rider and has worked for the NCRS for many years helping horse and livestock owners. Alayne will also be offering farm consultations, and participants have the opportunity to audit for free.
