At a time when small farming is steadily becoming a viable career path for many people, it is important to understand what that path looks like, and what demands, pitfalls, and rewards await those that heed the call of the land. That is what the Farm Dreams workshop series aims to explore.
Farm Dreams is an online workshop series for aspiring farmers, helping them discover what it would really take to start a farm business. Each session includes exercises to help assess skills and resources, and provide direction for next steps in building a farm business. We’ll be joined by local farmers to share their experience in turning their farm dreams into farm reality!
In the words of past Farm Dreams participant, Jessica Whinston of Fours Winds Farm,
I did fulfill my dream. I’m doing what I love to do every single day. There’s lots of things that I could change to make my farm better, but my dream is that I’m doing what I love, there’s not much more to it. Even when it is hard, heartbreaking, intense, I love my job every single day.
Everyone has dreams, and if farming is yours then this workshop is definitely a place to start turning your dreams into a reality.
