Beginning Farmers: Don’t miss this opportunity!
If you’ve been thinking about starting a farm, don’t miss your last chance to take Growing Places this winter. Offered online, this four-module course introduces new farmers to important topics, resources and services integral to getting their farm started off right. The deadline to register is December 13, 2013. The course will begin the second week of January.
The online class format includes self-paced modules and discussion boards, allowing participants to fit in class time when it works best for their schedule. In addition, a weekly webinar allows for real-time presentations and Q&A. All webinars are recorded and can be viewed later for those who cannot participate in the live presentation.
