University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Waldo County Extension Association are hosting the 24th annual Rural Living Day Saturday, April 7, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. at Mount View High School, 577 Mount View Road.

All are welcome to attend the daylong event to learn about all things related to rural living. From attracting the birds and bees to repelling ticks and invasive plants, there is a workshop for everyone who is dreaming of getting their hands back in the soil.

Not ready to venture outdoors just yet? We will also feature workshops about food and drink preparation, off-grid homesteading and composting (indoors).

Registration is required. A $20 donation is requested for three workshops and a lunch featuring locally sourced foods. Proceeds help Waldo County youth attend UMaine Extension Tanglewood 4-H Camp in Lincolnville.
