Skill, Scale, and Sustainability
This is a 3-day intensive workshop that blends philosophy and pragmatic advice with hands-on training and real-life problem solving as you develop your small-scale agricultural endeavors. Based on lessons learned from a lifetime of work and travel in food and farming, Shane provides unique insights from his practical experience of reconciling idealism with the nitty-gritty, day-to-day reality of maintaining a viable and sustainable enterprise.
As we consider small farm design, we will address real life skills and knowledge that aspiring farmers need to know. On-site and hands-on demonstrations with scale-appropriate tools, equipment, and gear will allow workshop attendees to make better decisions for their own operations. Classroom lectures and discussions will explore the rhythm and evolution of a season, and offer tips and ideas for better management of time and resources.
$225; registration is required and available online or call 301-283-2113. A limited number of scholarships are available.
