Small is beautiful! And even the smallest parcels of land can be productive when properly managed. That's what the Small Acreage Expo is all about, and it's happening from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, Apr. 5, at the 78th Street Heritage Farm, 1919 78th St. in Vancouver. Attendees can choose from many workshops and seminars, including vermicomposting, beekeeping, fruit growing, goat keeping, fence building (remember, good fences makes good neighbors, at least according to Rober Frost), draining solutions for waterlogged land, pasture repair, naturscaping, and raising beef—among other topics.
If you'd like to add a boxed lunch to your day, the cost is $20; if not, tickets are $10 per person. The day includes an open house during the lunch hour where you can visit with local agencies and vendors who offer services and solutions for small acreage owners. The Small Acreage Expo is co-sponsored by the WSU Clark County Extension and Clark County Environmental Services Clean Water Program.
