UConn Extension Solid Ground “The Business of Farming” Course Starts Jan. 19-March 1, 2024
UCONN EXTENSION’S SOLID GROUND PROGRAM ACCEPTING APPLICATIONS FOR “THE BUSINESS OF FARMING”
This course will accommodate 15-18 participants for a 7-week learning opportunity that includes both virtual and in-person meetings (details below). It is designed to develop and strengthen the business and technical skills for beginning farmers with 0 – 3 years of experience. Historically underserved beginning farmers are encouraged to apply.
Participate in a learning experience with farmer peers and develop new networks along the way. You are welcomed to a safe space and environment to foster informal interactions, knowledge, comradery and relationship building. As we enter the winter months in agriculture, this is an important time to acquire some of the fundamental skills in farm business management, such as completing your business plan, creating farm business record-keeping, tax filing, and grant writing.
Please only apply if you can commit to attending all seven training sessions (both virtual and in-person) that take place on Fridays from January 19 – March 1.
