Winter Workshop Dates and Locations

The 2017 No-Till on the Plains conference is January 24-25 in Salina, Kansas. The conference is in its 21st year and once again will have an excellent star lineup of speakers. To make it better, there is a $50 Sustainable Agriculture grant for all that signup to travel together through the Extension Office in Saline County. You will travel with Nebraska Extension Educators Gary Lesoing, Paul Hay and myself to the two-day conference in Salina and the $50 is redeemable upon return with only minor paperwork. We have the transportation covered through a grant also.

Sometimes it's hard to tell what your chilld needs, what her behaviors mean and if you're doing right by him. Imagine what it might feel like if you could make sense of what your child is really asking from you.

Circle of Security Parenting is an opportunity to join other parents just like you, for an 8-week class where you'll learn to strengthen your relationship with your child; be present with your child during the best and toughest of times; recognize your child's needs and make sure of his or her behavior; and meet your child's needs by being bigger, stronger, wiser and kind.
