Term 3 of the Ignatius Farm New Farmer Training Program has begun!

This program provides knowledge, training and experience needed to start a farm and an opportunity to meet other new and experienced farmers and become a part of the ecological agricultural community in Ontario.

Educational content is geared toward new farmers, but is open to all farmers who might be curious about a certain topic, wishing to expand their farming knowledge, or in need of a refresh. Webinars include: Apiculture, Permaculture, Livestock (various), a deeper dive into some terms 1 and 2 topics.

Participants begin with foundational knowledge, then learn about specialized aspects of farming, and end with a focus on establishing farm businesses.  Participants can join for a single webinar or sign up for a whole term.
