Future Harvest CASA Beginning Farmer Training Program for the Chesapeake Bay
The Future Harvest CASA Beginning Farmer Training Program offers a year-long immersive training experience that combines a comprehensive classroom curriculum with hands-on learning at Chesapeake region farms that employ practices that are profitable, protect land and water, and build healthy communities.
We offer 3 levels of training, designed to meet the needs of new farmers at different stages, from entry-level to advanced. The program has built-in scheduling flexibility and is open to beginning farmers in MD, VA, DE—including the Delmarva Peninsula—and DC, WV, and PA.
All 3 levels of the Future Harvest CASA beginning farmer training program are FREE and trainees receive a host of additional benefits:
- Future Harvest CASA membership
- Free admission to our popular winter conference
- Free admission to our year-round field days at innovative farms
- Access to a supportive network of new and experienced farmers
- and more!
The final submission deadline is October 15, 2017, but spots are limited and applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis, so applicants are encouraged to submit early.
