Dream to Farm, a partnership with Iowa Western and Golden Hills, will instruct potential producers on how to start a small-scale local food farm. This program is reviving the Dream to Farm program that was held by Iowa Western and Golden Hills in 2012-2013.
Many aspects of starting a local food production farm--including business planning, crop (vegetable, fruit, herbs, and small grains) and livestock production, pest management, and more, will be included in the class.
The 14-week course begins on September 14 and will hold sessions from 5:30-8:30pm on Thursdays (except Thanksgiving) through December 14.
More details will be posted here as soon as they are confirmed. Topics include:
