Training for Future and Existing Farmers
?Growing Growers? is a new program in Kansas City to train farmers in local food production. Our goal is to increase the number and effectiveness of small farms that grow food organically and/or sustainably in the Kansas City Metro Area.
We want to see more and more effective:
Wholesale Vegetable and Fruit Farms
Farms offering Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs
?You Pick? operations
Farm Stand operations
We want to help you grow food for Kansas City!
We offer: Apprenticeships on Local Farms - for individuals who think they want to go into farming as a way of life.
Each year we?ll place 6-8 apprentices on area farms where they?ll get hands-on experience, direct training from the farmer, plus a regular schedule of more formalized training on topics from Understanding and Working with Midwestern Soils to Farm Production Planning.
Workshops for Current Farmers: Throughout the year we?ll organize workshops, field days, and educational opportunities for farmers who are interested in improving specific aspects of their operation. For example, we?ll offer a workshop in mechanization for farmers considering doing less by hand and more by machinery.
