Each winter, Michigan State University Extension offers a Beginning Farmer Webinar Series targeted at people who want to start a farm business or have less than ten years of experience running a farm business. These are very high quality webinars. People can register online and connect from their home, office, library, etc.
Each webinar is only $10 per connection. Live webinars take place in the evening from 7-9 pm; however, recordings are also available if people cannot connect during the live program.
We are hoping you can help us spread the word about these programs or perhaps host a viewing of some of the webinars for the public to attend.
