Starting Your Farm: Accessing Resources
September 13 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pmFREE
MOFGA’s Farm Training Project (FTP) workshops are designed for apprentices, Journeypeople, farmworkers and other beginning farmers. They follow an informal format including a farm tour and conversation on the topic of the day. All events are free but require registration.
The Starting Your Farm workshop is a three-part Zoom series. First up is Accessing Resources. Finding a place and resources to farm can be a huge challenge. Whether you’re working as a farmhand, manager or apprentice, it is never too soon to consider your options. Maine’s field agent for Land For Good’s Maine field agent and Bo Dennis, MOFGA’s beginning farmer specialist, will help you brainstorm about your future farm, the land base you’ll need and the variety of ways to achieve your farm dream. This session will include time for you to hear from others, reflect on your goals and learn about the resources available to support you in farming in Maine.
Join us for the rest of the Starting Your Farm series, Selecting Your Enterprises on October 4 and Planning Your First Year in Production on October 18.
For questions call 207-568-4142 or email MOFGA’s Beginning Farmer Program Specialist, Bo Dennis, at [email protected].
