The goal of this program is to train individuals to start successful commercial farms and help existing farmers improve or diversify their farms. It’s available to individuals who have never managed a farm, with a focus on assisting minorities and veterans.
The Central State Extension will provide educational workshops, hands-on apprenticeships, seeds, fertilizer, compost, mulch, irrigation system, small farming equipment, access to USDA loans and grants for farm expansion, assistance in marketing and business planning, and much more.
This free program is a weekly apprenticeship series that will train those interested in growing fruits and vegetables for a living. More detailed information can be found on our Facebook. Please RSVP to attend!
