Build a foundation to start a successful farm enterprise!


This program will not only provide you with critical information to start your farm, but you will meet other new and experienced farmers and become a part of the ecological agricultural community in Ontario. Educational content is geared toward new farmers, but is open to all farmers who might be curious about a certain topic, wishing to expand their farming knowledge, or in need of a refresh.


Because of the current health and safety protocols in effect, this program will take place online through webinars and virtual field days. 



Term 3 focuses on expanding beyond basics and building skills for a specialized farm.
