February 28 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


Join the Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association and the National Agriculture Apprenticeship Learning Network for a virtual 5 part labor management series designed for farmers that employ workers or host apprentices.

Attend only a few or all of the workshops in the series. Please register here and direct any questions about the series to Beginning Farmer Program Specialist, Bo Dennis at [email protected].

Supporting Learning and Empowering Leaders in Your Staff

In our final session of this labor management series come learn from Julie Sullivan from San Juan Ranch and Groundswell Center for Local Food and Farming about supporting the learning of your crew and apprentices. We will explore balancing learning and doing while farming, the experiential learning cycle for adult learners, and how to build respect and investment in your worker to create a more supportive workplace. A farmer round table discussion will follow. 


Participants should only register once for the entire labor management series.
