Skills-building workshops are usually full-day, intensive training sessions focused on specific topics related to on-farm production methods. Our workshops range in format from classroom-style lectures to outdoor hands-on training to local farm tours. We are dedicated to finding the most qualified instructors, and do our best to find local experts to deliver workshop content.
