MAINE STATEWIDE – On Monday, Oct. 1 at 1 p.m. farmers involved in greenhouse and year-round
growing in Maine are invited to a one-hour webinar to preview a new free budget tool that can help
questions such as:

– How much money does your greenhouse make after expenses?
– What is your labor worth in dollars?
– Which greenhouse crops produce the greatest dollar value per square foot?

Participants will preview how the tool can be used for budgeting and forecasting, and will also be asked
to share suggestions for how to improve it. The webinar will be presented by Dr. Aaron Hoshide from
the University of Maine School of Economics with moderator Bill Giordano, Outreach and Education
Coordinator for the Sustainable Year Round Agriculture Cluster (SYRA) of the Maine Sustainable
Agriculture Society (MESAS).
