Explore Farming Series
Thursdays 6:30-8 p.m. | Oct. 20 -Nov. 3
Getting started in farming can be hard, but with a solid understanding of your purpose and readiness you can create a plan to guide you into farming. The Explore Farming workshop series will walk you through the process of understanding what your path looks like.
Explore Farming is an online workshop series for those just getting started in farming, helping you discover what it would really take to start a farm business. Each session includes exercises to help you assess your skills and resources, and provide direction for next steps in building a farm business. We’ll be joined by local farmers to share their experience in turning their farm dreams into farm reality!
