I was pleased to learn that the Grower’s Academy was rescheduled for 2015 in Wytheville, VA. What a great opportunity for beginning farmers to learn about starting an agricultural business and for existing farmers to discover how to expand their existing operation.
The Grower’s Academy class Jordan and I attended in 2012 helped guide our nebulous daydream of farming into a living, breathing reality. What knowledge and confidence that course gave us! As an added benefit, we gained lasting connections to local growers who became mentors, friends, and real-time sources of information.
If you are at all interested in farming or want to see how you can make your existing operation more productive, you should consider this course.
Just had to share it with you all….
