In this four- day intensive course, you will learn how to take the step from gardener to growing for market. Our classroom will be in the field, where we will grow four different crops, cover pest, weed and disease control, try out new tools, go over the basics of record keeping and doing a crop enterprise budget, learn harvesting techniques, post-harvest washing and handling and marketing. You will receive a thumb drive with downloaded books on various farming topics, spreadsheets for record keeping, pest, weed and disease control and more.
