Gaining expert advice at the Learn About Your Land (LAYL) courses is guaranteed, but most landowners gain valuable perspectives from an unlikely source: their neighbors. “It was through another landowner’s experience we saw hope for our own land,” say Jerry and Christine Schmidt, Jackson County landowners and past LAYL participants.
Randy Mell, UW-Extension’s LAYL program manager recognizes conversations among peers are valuable, “Personal experiences – small and large, positive and negative – make LAYL come alive for participants.”
