“Computers and computer technology have become very important to local ranchers and farmers – including gardeners,” said Tina McGuill, librarian.
This technology is a great resource for researching new or different methods for growing foods; for finding inputs such as fertilizers or pest repellents; and for learning about federal, state, and local funds for those that grow food.
TMBC is a non-profit organization that provides workshops and information on a variety of topics related to agriculture.
