Update for Northern Co-Hort

What’s Next…

 

       Well, it has been 4 months since we started the Northern Co-Hort (a division of NEAT) and we have already accomplished a great deal. Since November we have completed three Farmer Connections events, The Farmers Grant Writing Workshop with Adlard Environmental and the two day Grow Series event with Chris Bodnar and the Young Agrarians. This along with numerous farm visits and survey data have really set the pace for the next few months. 

       February is upon us and we already have a line up of events scheduled.
Starting with the first week. We are off to Fort Nelson for the 4th of the Farmer Connections Series and visiting farmers in the region. Then in three weeks we are off again for the 5th Farmers Connections series in Chetwynd. These two events along with farm visits in between and analyzing the data we have collected from our surveys will give us a full and active month ahead.

       March and April are already shaping up to be busy months. In conjunction with more farm visits, we are also scheduling another workshop on “Grant Writing for Farmers” in March to help support those who were not able to attend the first meeting. In April there will be an Intensive Grazing workshop being held by the Cattlemen’s Association in both Dawson Creek and Fort St. John, so stay tuned and we will keep you posted on the dates and locations of these events. As always, we will be posting events and discussions on our Facebook page so pop by and check it out. 

       Anyone interested in setting up a farm visit or a meeting at our office please contact us at:
NEAT’s office: 250 – 785 – 6328.        

One last note, we are sad to say that Theresa White is no longer with our team and has gone on to do other work. We will truly miss her wonderful personality and smile. Good Luck Theresa!
