Farm Dreams: A day of exploration for dreamers.

Farm Dreams Workshop

Dreaming of starting your own farm?

Farm Dreams is an entry-level, five-hour workshop designed to help people who are seeking practical, common-sense information on sustainable farming and how to move forward. This is a great workshop to attend if you are in the exploratory stages of starting a farm.

  • 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.
