Guest post from Wilma B of Indiana: Ask your state forester questions.  My forester answered my questions and encouraged me to attend local woodland committee meetings where I heard much helpful information. At field days and workshops, I was able to see and hear what others were doing and who they hired to do it if they couldn't do it themselves.

This two day course is designed for women. Most participants have little or no experience with a chainsaw, though this course is also an effective refresher for more experienced individuals who have developed some bad habits with a saw. This is the gateway course to learning more advanced practices.

“Who-ga-culture.”  Who the what?! German for "mound or hill culture", this ancient agricultural technique is used to construct garden beds from decaying wood debris and other compostable biomass plant materials. The process helps to improve soil fertility, water retention, and soil warming, thus benefiting plants grown on or near such mounds.
