Farm Workshop: Tractor 101 for Women
When: Sunday, October 21 from 2-5 pm
Where: SAHC Community Farm
This workshop will be a safe environment for women to learn how to maintain and safely use tractors on their farms. This workshop is specifically for women and will be led by local farmer Danielle Hutchison of Beacon Village Farm.
Small and large tractors are among the most important assets on any farm. This hands-on workshop provides a foundation in basic maintenance and safe, efficient operation. Learn how to service the filters and regularly grease your tractor, loader and implements. Participate in hitching and unhitching a 3-point attachment for efficient implement switching, and run a front-end loader.
Participants will leave with the knowledge to take care of their mechanized equipment, leading to less equipment damage, failure and down time. Bring your questions!
This workshop is open to the public; everyone is welcome!
