Hands-on Days

Interactive group field trips for Beginner Farmer Training Program participants

We know that the best place to learn how to farm is in the field. For this reason, the Level 1 program has been designed to augment and bring to life the concepts that trainees learn in their online classroom work. These half- to full-day trips are designed to introduce Level 1 trainees to diverse farm operations and practical beginner farmer skills. Additionally, they serve as networking and community building opportunities for Level 1 trainees. Trainees can expect to engage in projects such as:

  • Seed-starting and transplanting
  • Building structures for season extension
  • Bed preparation and planting
  • Large harvests
  • Livestock care and tending

These days will occur throughout the region and the schedule will be set by early 2023.
