2017 Manure Management Workshops

Two Additional workshops have been added:
March 29th – Lower Oxford Township Building
April 12th – Honey Brook township Building

In Pennsylvania, all operations that generate or land apply manure, regardless of scale, are required by law to have, maintain, and implement a Chapter 91 Manure Management Plan. Come learn about it and actually write a plan at one of our workshops!  The workshops are occurring in various township buildings throughout the county:  Honey Brook, Lower Oxford, and West Vincent.  Click here to see the workshop flyer for more information.
