After many many requests for additional classes, flexible schedules, more personalized property focus - coupled with the State's heavy budget cuts at the college, we have decided to privatize our entire teaching program and outreach permanently.
Our most familiar class, which Keith has taught for over 10 years now at Sierra College was:
AG 118 RANCH PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT & MANAGEMENT
AG118 focuses on ranch & rural property development, that includes: site evaluation, soil evaluation, irrigation system selection, design and management, pond construction and management, pasture evaluation, establishment and/or rehabilitation, rural fire safety and much more. Most of our students are new and seasoned rural property owners, realtors, farmers, ranchers and natural resource specialists from Nevada, Placer, Sierra, Sacramento, Yuba & El Dorado Counties.
. . . Will now be taught by Keith and Paul in a more intimate venue without the classes minimum student enrollment restrictions or strict time constraints put on by the college, in the past.
Our new classes will be tuned to the class that is enrolled at a given point.
Next Upcoming Classes:
We are pleased to announce that we will be teaching our popular All Day Pond Class on July 13, 2013 on location at a special rural property with a 1.25 acre pond in South Nevada County. This class is going to be intentionally kept smaller and will be open to twenty (20) students and . . .
- We will have at three guest speakers at this class, including;
- Sue Golden, owner of the specialty Aquatic Plant Nursery - Golden Pond Nursery. Sue has over 20 years of experience and is an aquatic plant landscaping expert. Sue will be bringing examples of dozens of desirable plants for you to consider for your pond as well as her custom "floating islands". Sue will also be taking orders for contract growing of larger quantities if you will be needing them this year (or next) for your pond projects.
- Doug Herfurth of RuralPonds.com who specializes in mechanical pond weed removal and maintenance. Doug is planning on demonstrating some before & after spots on the pond we will be holding the class at. It should be dramatic.
- Frank Starkey retired Professional Aquaculturist -- Frank has several decades of knowledge in warm water fish (Bass, Bluegill, Sunfish, Catfish and more) rearing, stocking levels, spawning, health concerns, habitat issues and more. He is an amazing resource and a good friend of ours. We are happy to have him on board to speak at this class.
