Growing Growers ICT - Starting a Farm and Business Management 

So you want to grow food for market, but your business skills aren't quite sufficient for you to sell it effectively? Come learn what it takes to sell, market, and grow profitably in our local food economy. Look behind the scenes of a large farmer's market and tour a local farm specializing in online sales - you won't want to miss this one!

Following is the approximate workshop schedule:

  • 8:00-11:30am - Lecture (including farmer's market field day activity)
  • 11:30am-12:30pm - Break for lunch (on your own - maybe check out options at the farmers market!) 
  • 12:30-1:30pm - Tour Orie's Farm Fresh (address sent upon registration)

While the lecture portion of this workshop will be recorded for viewing later, we HIGHLY encourage in-person participation at this event! (There will not be an option to join the workshop live on Zoom.)
