Together, they are very familiar with most agricultural education opportunities across Virginia and can show new farmers where to get the help they need for any farming enterprise.
The Introduction to Whole Farm Planning workshop is free and open to the public.
Class size is limited, and participants must RSVP. No walk-ins will be allowed.
