Grazing Networks

 Grazing Networks - Our greatest resource is each other.

There is a considerable amount of grazing knowledge and experience available among GrassWorks members. Grazing networks may differ in size, structure, and agency support, but have a shared goal of developing closer ties among members. This results in the greater ability to share amongst the group. Pasture walks are the primary vehicle for information exchange. Winter meetings and conferences are also valuable to stay connected and present materials, including inviting speakers and university research.
Feel free to reach out to a network coordinator in your region or contact us if you’re interested in resources for starting your own network.

Check out the GrassWorks calendar for upcoming pasture walks and events throughout the region.
