K-State Research and Extension will host three upcoming workshops to address issues facing Kansas farm families. The series, Whole Farm Health: Building Resilience from the Field to the Farmer, will be held on three upcoming Thursday evenings:

  • February 23 – Regenerating Soil Health One Field at a Time
  • March 2 – Increasing Farm Financial Resiliency
  • March 9 – Sustaining Personal Mental Health and Wellness

All three sessions will be held at the Grace Community Church in Overbrook, Kansas from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Admission is free and a meal will be provided.

More information and registration is available online at https://whole-farm-health.constantcontactsites.com.

These workshops offer an opportunity to pull together as a farm community and address strategies for building more resilient farm systems through diversified cropping systems, incorporating cover crops, and grazing, as well as simple methods to identify indicators of mental health in ourselves or our loved ones who are suffering.

In addition to K-State Research and Extension, workshop sponsors include the Kansas Farm Bureau, Kansas Soil Health Alliance, Frontier Farm Credit, Kansas Alliance for Wetlands and Streams, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, Douglas County Conservation District and the Kansas Watershed Restoration and Protection program.
