Announcing Farm School 2013! 18 Reasons and the Bi-Rite Farm are delighted to offer the opportunity to get your hands dirty during this ten session immersion course held May through September 2013. |
Farm School is geared for adults who want to learn about the life, economics, and labor of small scale organic farming. The course includes five lectures at 18 Reasons and five farming days at the Bi-Rite Farm and Sonoma Garden Park in Sonoma. The lectures will take you through the logistics and business of starting a rural or urban farm, and the farm sessions will put you on-site digging, planting, weeding and harvesting.
While not a comprehensive how-to-start-a-farm class, farm school is perfect for people interested in the politics and practicalities of small scale organic farming in the Bay Area, and who are willing to get their hands dirty and learn a lot!
Simon Richards, Bi-Rite Market's farmer and head produce buyer will co-lead the farming days with Hannah Shulman, garden and farming teacher. Guest lectures include Andy Griffin from Mariquita Farm, Darryl Wong, from Freewheelin Farm, educators from Sonoma Garden Park and more!
$375-$500 sliding scale.
