grow your farm skills!
Posted: September 15 2014
The Cornell Small Farms Program and Cornell Cooperative Extension offer a menu of 12 online courses each Fall and Winter to help farmers develop their businesses. These 5- to 7-week online courses cost $200 total for up to 4 members of the same farm to attend. They are an amazing opportunity to discover new resources, build your farm plan, hear from successful farmers, and develop a support network of peers. Courses consist of a weekly real-time webinar followed by readings, discussion forums, and homework on your own time.
Students successfully completing a course are eligible to receive a 0% interest loan of up to $10,000 through Kiva Zip!
