The Michigan State University campus will be housing a variety of agriculture and natural resources trainings next week March 7‒14 during the annual ANR Week on campus. Many of you may be interested in attending some of the events. Consider checking out the schedule, and referring friends and family to the events that might be of interest. Many of the trainings can be useful for individuals of any age.
This year marks the 100th anniversary of ANR Week, presented by the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources, Michigan State University Extension and MSU AgBioResearch. Debuting as “Farmers Week” in 1914, the event has since developed into more than 50 programs and annual association meetings related to agriculture, horticulture and natural resources. Learn more about the history of ANR Week on the ANR Week website.
This year’s schedule includes conferences and programs on many hot topics, including sessions on the latest Farm Bill, subsidies, the Right-to-Farm Act, the emerging trend of nontraditional farmers in minority communities, the increase in urban and suburban backyard farmers and the need for rapidly growing farmers markets.
ANR Week consistently proves to be an exciting week full of informative experiences. If you have a chance to come out and join us, we would love to have you!
