Rural Living Month, formerly known as Rural Living Day, is an annual event in April hosted by the University of Maine Cooperative Extension and Waldo County Extension Association. During the four-week event, a variety of workshops will be offered by Extension staff and community experts on topics ranging from gardening with youth to cheesemaking, invasive forest pests, and livestock management. This year the event will consist of four virtual workshops on the first four Saturdays in April. There is a $10 fee per workshop.
