Growing the Next Generation of Sustainable Farmers
What do collard greens in the Roxbury neighborhood of Boston represent? Healthy food where people live, and the need to continually recruit and train farmers worldwide if the rest of us hope to survive. This picture of urban agriculture also highlights why farming practices must become more sustainable at every scale. Join a seasoned group of Wisconsin agricultural educators on November 14 to talk about a wide range of education, training, and farm placements. We welcome farmers, young and old, urban and rural, to help us explore what beginning farmers need to learn to sustain their farms and our food system in the 21st century.
