Good Farming Workshops:

Our Good Farming workshops covering both sustainable business and production topics selected by local farmers and taught by farmers and relevant experts. These workshops are generally hands-on and in addition to training provide an excellent networking opportunity. Farmers, whether existing or aspiring, are highly encouraged to attend as well as agricultural professionals. See our events page for more information on upcoming workshops.
