Are you a farm worker, apprentice, or intern interested in learning more about agriculture and developing your skillset? If so, the Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training (CRAFT) program is an opportunity for you to attend on-farm intensive workshops and network with other farm workers in the area! Each meeting will include a farm tour and workshop followed by a potluck dinner. The schedule for these Sunday evening events is listed below- plan on being there for a farm tour starting at 5 until dinner ends around 7:30. Interested farm workers are expected to attend at least 3 of the 4 gatherings and will receive a certificate of participation at the end of the season.
