  • Farm Tours

 

Plan a day to tour a Small-Acreage, Organic Market Farm. A master farmer will walk the farm with your group and discuss the farm’s history, layout, structures, practices, micro-cliimate, market, as well as, its struggles and successes. Ask questions. If you want, stay and volunteer. Tour takes approximately 1-2 hours depending on what you want to learn. Limited parking. Not accessible by buses. Groups usually arrive in vans and/or cars.

 

  • Workshops

 

Plan an event where a small group can learn about organic farming techniques through hands-on experiences. FoodWaves is willing to work with you and your interests to find an appropriate topic(s) to meet the needs of your group. Master farmers will develop a lesson plan based on real day-to-day organic farm activities.

 

For example, learn how to FoodWaves seeds, singulates, and transplants through hands-on experience by learning/working alongside a master farmer.

 

Also, please see calendar to discover if any events have been planned that you may want to join.

 

  • Train the Trainers

 

If you have already established an educational garden at your site, then organize a group of club members, staff, parents, and/or garden volunteers to learn how to garden like an organic farmer! 

 

As stated earlier, FoodWaves is limited to how much off-campus training they can do because of amount a time/funds and based on the fact that they are actual farmers! So, visit our farm! There is so much to learn, so many ideas to share, and so many questions that can be asked as we work together!
