Two regional Introduction to Farm and Ranch Resources Workshops targeting beginning farmers and ranchers were hosted in Central Alabama during 2015 to address basic and broad aspects of environmental interactions in agricultural systems. Workshops were broken into distinct program area topics: 1) Soil, Water, and Climate, 2) Livestock, Forages and Economics and focused on providing information to beginning farmers and ranchers by presenting educational resource information, introducing key concepts and terminology. Results of the two workshops documented a change in knowledge of the material presented. Perceptions of workshop attendees with respect to sustainable agriculture and environmental stewardship and workshop satisfaction were measured and found to be a priority.
