The mission of the Education Committee is to provide educational opportunities and resources ranging from farm tours to full day workshops that inspire and enable greater success amongst our members. The Education Committee has focused on topics such as seed systems, animal integration, water usage in the high desert, soil health, and crop/farm planning.
The Education Committee’s role is to put on member-focused, dynamic educational events that support the learning curve for new and beginning farmers, build specific skill sets, and meet the varied needs of diverse operations from a foundational perspective.
What's up Next:
This winter, the Education Committee will be providing an online learning series for Business Fundamentals of Farming and Ranching! They are also in the process of planning an educational curriculum for 2021 that includes multi-day trainings on Small-Scale Grains, Business Fundamentals, and Animal Husbandry / Soil Health.
