Google Earth is a free and valuable tool for growers and livestock caretakers of all scales is Google Earth Pro, which helps you learn about many aspects of the land you are working with.
Join farmer and extension educator Steve Gabriel to learn the basic functions in the program and how you can measure distances for fencing, estimate acreage and design paddocks, dig into USGS soils data, upload detailed contour maps, and plan for the coming season by learning a few simple tools and tricks. Students will receive some follow up information and steps to start working on their own farm plan.
After the initial Part I online session on February 18 (which can also be viewed from the Groundswell office), students are invited back in person for Part II on March 18 to join a live working session where you can ask questions and work on your farm plans with support. Join us for just one, or both sessions.
