Farm School
Announcing Farm School 2012! 18 Reasons, Garden for the Environment, Bi-Rite Farm, and Freewheelin Farm are delighted to offer the opportunity to get your hands dirty during this ten session immersion course held May through September 2012.

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 full farming days at the Bi-Rite Farm 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.  

Simon Richards, Bi-Rite Market's farmer and head produce buyer will lead the farming days. Darryl Wong, farmer at Freewheelin Farm in Santa Cruz, will be the lead teacher for the Wednesday lectures. Hannah Shulman, Garden Education Coordinator at Garden for the Environment and Rosie Branson Gill, Program Director at 18 Reasons, will co-facilitate the program.
