Applications are now open for LSP’s 2022-2023 Farm Beginnings Course. Beginning and prospective farmers are invited to apply to Farm Beginnings, a year-long training program that focuses on the goal setting, marketing, and financial skills needed to establish a successful farm business. The Farm Beginnings Course creates a space for folks to name their vision, acquire the tools and skills needed to make it happen, and become part of a community of support to help them succeed.
This year, the course will be a hybrid, taking place mostly online via Zoom, but also including some in-person sessions in the Twin Cities, Minn., area. The course will run from November 2022 through March 2023, with some additional educational opportunities to take place later in 2023.
The deadline for applications is Sept. 1, 2022. Early bird applications submitted by Aug. 1 will receive a $100 discount if you are accepted into the class. Scholarships will be available. For more details and to apply, click here.
