Our farmer-to-farmer workshops provide a platform for growers to share their hard-won experience with one another.
Through our workshop series, NOFA/RI invites local farmers to share their areas of expertise. Topics have included soil health and fertility, season extension, weed and pest control, marketing and business models, as well as whole farm planning.
Depending on topic, workshops may be held on-farm or virtually. Host farmers receive a stipend, made possible by a USDA Specialty Crop Block Grant from RI DEM’s Division of Agriculture.
