Description/Notes: 

Are you curious about starting your own farm? Interested in the use of sustainable agricultural practices? With enterprise selection, financing, credit, land access, business management, and more to consider, it can be challenging to make the first move. Shannon (University of Maryland Extension) and Sarah (Future Harvest CASA) will share the resources available to beginning farmers through the University of Maryland’s Beginning Farmer Success program, a collaboration between multiple local organizations, to get started on the right path.

As an installment of our 2017 Sustainable Agriculture Tuesdays series, this workshop is open to the UMD community and free to attend.
