Farming help comes to Cloquet

The University of Minnesota Extension is offering day-long training for those that work with or know farm families experiencing stress, loss or tough decisions for their family or business.

Ambiguous loss and farming facilitator training will be offered at five locations across the state of Minnesota during January. Locations include the Cloquet Forestry Center on Jan. 11 at the Library Room (175 University Road, Cloquet).

Ambiguous loss is related to grief. In farming, it can be the loss of a farmer or farm, or something psychological like the break-up of a family due to farming issues or failure.

The workshop is scheduled from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. There is no charge to attend, but pre-registration is required. To learn more and register, visit z.umn.edu/lossandfarming.

Questions about the training can be directed to Emily Krekelberg at [email protected] or 612-756-3977.
