The North Farm is hosting a series of Extension short courses starting in April on topics designed for market gardeners, small farms, and skill-seekers interested in gardening and farming. These short courses are an in-depth exploration of farming fundamentals and best practices taught by multiple instructors. Come to The North Farm for 5-hour learning sessions with an emphasis on hands-on activities so you can practice what you learn in class.
Each short course includes the cost of materials for a project that is part of the instruction. “We want everyone to leave with something in their hands that they can use on their own farm when they get home,” said Abbey Palmer, Education Coordinator at The North Farm. Activities include using low hoop benders, building a strap hoe, saving seeds, and learning to test soil respiration.
