MOFGA’s FARM TRAINING PROJECT
May - September 2015
Taking place on premier farms throughout Maine
Learn farming skills from farmers themselves
Discover the diversity of Maine agriculture
Help keep alive the tradition of free exchange of ideas that makes the Maine organic farming community so vibrant and innovative.
Workshops are designed for and targeted to participants in MOFGA's Apprenticeship Program, but are free and open to anyone interested. They are intended to give apprentices and other young, beginning, and aspiring farmers the chance to visit other farms, learn from farmers about their areas of expertise, and socialize with peers.The workshops follow an informal format, beginning with a farm tour, followed by a presentation on the topic of the day. Participants are then invited to stay for a potluck supper – bring a place setting and a dish or something fresh from the farm to share.
For more information about or directions to any of the workshops, email Abby or call 568-4142. To join the email list click here.
