Agriculture & Horticulture
In Workforce Solutions, we understand the needs of the local agriculture and horticulture based businesses are high, because they conduct the most important work in the world! We engage individuals and businesses that focus on producing products that consumers need every day. Along with local extension agencies, educational institutions, and community organizations, Carrie Taylor and Dennis Perry help to develop and sustain activities and projects that improve the work of businesses and support educational initiatives throughout the counties we serve Horticulture.
We offer a diversity of classes and sessions that focus on an array of farming and design elements which focus on plant production in our Maysville Greenhouse and farming topics such as cattle, livestock and forage production. Through diversification projects, many businesses within our communities can brand out and conduct a multitude of business techniques, which help individuals within the community. We assist individuals and businesses through:
- Site-based visits for individuals or group related projects
- Training for community-based organization and schools
- Small business consultation and training through Community Education
Through our partnership with the Mason Count Extension Office, there are several activities/sessions available for you to attend this year.
