Stay tuned for more 2021 events! Farm tours, demonstrations, field days, activities, and networking events will be scheduled throughout the season.
While we are planning and hoping to host many of these summertime events in person, most of the spring the workshops will be held virtually via Zoom. We will do our best to include virtual tours and interactive components to keep the workshops lively, until we are able to meet in-person again!
Stay updated on workshops changes and when registration is live by liking our Facebook page.
Workshops cost between $5 and $10 to attend. Updated information on prices can be found on the registration pages when they are live.
