Farm dreams workshop gives snapshot of Farm Beginnings class
A four-hour workshop for beginning farmers will give participants a snapshot of the Farm Beginnings class.
A cooperative effort of the Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society and University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, the Oct. 1 workshop from 10 a.m. -2:30 p.m. at UNL’s Agricultural Research and Development Center near Mead, will help participants learn about whole farm planning, gain perspective from beginning farmers and learn key considerations for starting a farm.
Participants will assess their own strengths, resources and needs for further learning and identify key resources to help them take their next steps in moving forward either as an advocate for sustainable agriculture and food systems or as a beginning farmer.
Cost of the workshop is $50 per farm and will go toward the Farm Beginnings class registration fee. Farm Beginnings is scheduled for the fall and winter of 2010 and 2011. For more information about the class, click here.
Payment can be out made to UNL and sent to Gary Lesoing, University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension, Nemaha County, Suite 102, 1824 N St., Auburn, NE 68305. Registration must be received by Oct. 1.
