What to Expect

In this one-day, exploratory workshop participants will…

  • Learn about sustainable farming careers in Western North Carolina.
  • Discover and assess your resources, skills and farming intentions.
  • Begin to develop an educational plan toward farming.
  • Connect with regional training opportunities and support networks.
  • Prioritize your next steps toward your farming goals.
  • Hear from experienced farmers running successful farms in WNC.

 

OGS is also offering Homestead Dreams, a day-long program similar to the Farm Dreams, but geared toward homesteaders and folks interested in land-based living. The difference is that Farm Dreams focuses on an enterprise model where income generation is a significant part of the equation.
