Learn About Sustainable Forest Management!!

Hope everyone is having a fabulous summer!

The website will be up and running in August, until then we wanted to let you know about an event this Sunday.

Please consider attending the Blue Ridge Forest (
Co-op’s Field Day and Annual Meeting in Wythe County on July 20th.

This is a casual event open to folks interested in learning about options for their own forest management by hearing from other landowner-practitioners. We will also share hospitality with pot-luck goodies, hear a presentation about opportunities in the growing carbon sequestration market, and get an update on BRFC.
The Blue Ridge Forest Cooperative, a local business that is doing well and growing, thanks in part to a $300,000 USDA grant. BRFC is hosting this year’s annual meeting at the Minick’s farm in Wythe County. Please come and learn more about an organization that provides a great alternative to typical forestry practices as well as access to the carbon credit market. BRFC is also a way to invest in a local, sustainable business. I know you’re busy but consider joining us!

A few logistical issues to consider:

Please RSVP so we can have sufficient drinks and meeting space.

Parking is going to be a problem, so consider carpooling if possible.

Wear comfortable shoes because we’ll be walking to see different forest management practices.

For more information, RSVPs and directions contact Harry Groot- ( or 540.392.8081)
