ALBANY — Places are still left for the upcoming, multi-site Animal Regulation Issues for Local Governments, being held at locations in Washington, Rensselaer, Albany and Columbia Counties! Time to register! Link to registration page below.
The recent trend toward urban agriculture isn’t occurring only in large metropolitan areas. The greater Capital District has a number of homeowners who wish to grow their own eggs, meat and produce. Many local governments are being forced to react to situations based on neighbor complaints, animal welfare or pollution concerns.
This meeting will provide information and a chance to ask questions of several departments: Agriculture and Markets, Local Government Training and Cooperative Extension. They will shed some light on issues as well as resources for addressing the problems. There will be ample time to question the experts.
Our 2 hour multi-site WEBCAST meeting will provide information and resources available to local governments as they investigate issues related to enacting regulations for agriculture and animal ownership. With urban farming trends and more consumers concerned about their food sources, animals have infiltrated into village lots and beyond.
The webcast will be broadcast to 4 different locations, serving as a valuable springboard to local governments gathering knowledge and information.
The fee for the class is $10 per person. Pre-registration and payment in advance are required. Class size is limited though a minimum number of participants are needed.
