  • 2/28: Soil Science 101
  • 3/7: Interpreting a Soil Test
  • ***3/10 & 3/11: High Tunnel Raising
  • 3/14: Enterprise Budgets for Farmers
  • 3/21: Business Planning

***High Tunnel Raising Workshop

This intensive workshop will give you the skills and confidence to purchase and build your own high tunnel, as well as knowledge about tool and site selection, and the basics of growing crops in high tunnels.

This is a separate workshop that is not covered by the cost of the classroom series. You MUST register separately for this workshop here.

Scholarships are available courtesy of Mid-Atlantic Farm Credit! There are 5 spaces available, with a preference for folks currently farming in Baltimore City and other urban centers (although someone hoping to start an urban farm would also be a very strong candidate).

Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, with a final deadline of 5:00 pm on Monday March 6th. Feel free to let me know if you have any questions: 617-945-4883.
