Friends of Agriculture breakfast topic Wednesday, rebuilding forests

Polk County community members are invited to breakfast on Wednesday, Feb. 17 at 7 a.m. at the 4H Center in Columbus (located on Locust Street) where Rodney Booth will speak about woodland management and forest stewardship.
Rodney is the director of biodynamic operation at the Adawehi Institute and Wellness Center in Columbus. He will discuss managing woodlands for purposes other than forestry, as well as brush and weed control, landscaping woods, planting transplants in forests, trail maintenance, and controlling a bamboo forest.
The Friends of Agriculture Breakfast is a free monthly event open to everyone in the immediate region with interest in agriculture. This year, the Polk County Farm Bureau sponsors the breakfast, which continues to serve as a forum for farmers to share ideas. The formal program wraps up at 8 a.m., and all are welcome to stay longer for coffee and conversation with guest speakers and neighbors.
Please RSVP at (828)-894-2281 or at lsprague@polknc.org by Tuesday so that your meal will be planned accordingly.
