UW-Madison’s Center for Integrated Agricultural Systems is offering Wisconsin School For Beginning Market Growers January 9-11, 2015.
The Wisconsin School For Beginning Market Growers is an intensive three-day course that demonstrates what it takes to set up and run a successful market garden or small farm—including capital, management, labor and other resources. Topics include soil fertility, crop production, plant health and pest management, cover crops, equipment needs and labor considerations at different scales of operation, and marketing and economics. Three grower instructors primarily teach the course, with featured presentations and hands-on labs by UW faculty and other specialists. Grower-instructors’ farms vary in scale, cropping mix, marketing strategies and growing methods.
