Along with growing dozens of crops with their own unique needs or grazing livestock on healthy pastures, farmers must operate a financially viable business while navigating a changing climate. This requires deep, multidisciplinary knowledge spanning a wide and ever-evolving range of subjects.
Our community-based education and training programs for aspiring, beginning, or experienced farmers offer structured guidance from peer farmers and other food system professionals committed to regenerative land stewardship, protecting natural resources, and building healthy, vibrant local communities.
We hold farmer-to-farmer educational events year round for farmers of all experience levels on a variety of topics.
Our annual Sustainable Agriculture Conference has been cultivating transformative food system change since 1992. Each year, our conference educates, inspires, and connects farmers across the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond.
