Raising your own food can be a rewarding experience. It provides physical activity and a source of fresh food. Raising plants and animals in order to produce food is a great activity for the entire family and can be excellent for mental health. To assist small producers, novice livestock owners and gardeners and those thinking of trying their hands at backyard farming, the University of Maryland Extension has put together a series of educational webinars on various livestock and gardening topics.
