Upcoming Events

Throughout the year, Future Harvest partners with the Chesapeake region’s leading farmers, researchers, and technical service providers to offer hands-on learning and skills building opportunities, professional development opportunities, and exposure to the latest research and trends in agriculture. Our programs follow a farmer-to-farmer learning model and are conducted through a variety of formats: field tours, hands-on days, intensives, panel discussions, and webinars. All experience levels are welcome to engage in our on-farm events, webinars, and workshops.

  • Sustainable fruit and vegetable production
  • Sustainable livestock production
  • Business planning for farms and foodpreneurs
  • Land access and food sovereignty
  • Food Safety
  • And specialty crop production: cut flowers, small grains, tree fruit, mushrooms.
