March 16 Mentor Training Workshop for Farmers
Groundswell and Finger Lakes CRAFT offer an informal workshop and potluck for farmers who want to become better educators

Join us on Wednesday, March 16 at the EcoVillage FROG Common House, 5-8PM, to learn how you can become a more effective educator and mentor on your farm. Whether your goals are to provide better training and mentoring to your interns and employees, to conduct fabulous farm tours for the public, put on a great workshop, or just to get more comfortable about sharing your knowledge with others, this discussion will help you. Share your successes and your frustrations. Explore what makes a great learning experience. Reflect on how to respectfully engage learners with diverse backgrounds and perspectives. Take home ideas, tools and helpful contacts that you can put to use this season.
Registration and logistics: The cost for this workshop is $10 plus a dish-to-pass. Or join the Finger Lakes CRAFT ($25) and get in free! Please pre-register in advance if possible, by sending an email to: [email protected]. We’ll send you directions. And please help spread the word to other farmers who might benefit from the conversation. Thanks!
