Hands-on fencing workshop and pasture walk.

About this event

Our event will begin with a pasture walk and farm tour with our host farmer, Jennie Kapszukiewicz, at 9AM. Please plan to arrive shortly before 9 to sign in and join the group.

An educator from Wellscroft, Colin Kennard, who is also a farmer himself, will offer a hands-on demonstration from approximately 10-2. Topics will range from fencing types and voltages relative to animal, to corner braces and grounding rods. We will also walk the farm's fencing and Colin will identify areas needing maintenance and demonstrate those repairs and tune-ups. There will be hands-on activities and ample opportunities for questions.

Following the workshop, a late lunch will be provided (included with registration) at approximately 2PM.

The event is suitable for beginners in the planning stages as well as seasoned farmers. Registrants will receive a link to two fencing video "primers" that may be particularly helpful for beginners to watch to help smooth out some of the learning curve and help you get the most out of this in-person workshop.

This event will be conducted entirely outdoors. In accordance with CDC guidelines for outdoor gatherings where social distancing can be maintained, vaccinated attendees are not required to wear a mask. Non-vaccinated attendees are required to wear a mask. Should guidelines change, all registrants will be notified. There is not currently a rain date for this event. In the event of a storm, registrants will be contacted with additional information.
