Friends,
We’re reviewing our programmatic achievements this year. And wanting to thank all of your who donated to OGS. Your gifts and sponsorships have made all of this possible.
Farmer Training Good News:
The best news is that our Farm Beginnings Farmer Training program filled with 25 farmers from 16 farms from seven counties in Western NC. We even turned away some folks (to get some more experience) and have farmers on a wait list. The year-long, comprehensive farmer training program started this past weekend on October 15th.
New OGS Programs:
We launched two new online programs: Apprentice Link and OGS Farm Network.

We appreciate you!
