free summer farmer training
Weekends (Sat & Sun) - June & July 2022
This program is completed! Congratulations to all participants!
Stay tuned for future programs.
Solidarity Farm in collaboration with Foodshed and NRCS presents the 2022 Summer Farmer Training, an engaging training program in regenerative farming.
Now, more than ever, the world is witnessing a shift in the trajectory of food production systems. We would like to empower the next generation of farmers to be a part of the regenerative movement!
The Summer Training Program is designed for local aspiring and intermediate farmers that would like to gain basic skills in regenerative farming in a cooperative and supportive environment.
By the end of the program, you will have the knowledge to grow your own food, integrate regenerative methods that sequester carbon and build healthy soil, practice farming as a climate solution, and a toolkit to begin a small commercial farm operation.
Who is this for?
Community members in San Diego are welcome to apply (youth 18+), and we'd love to especially extend the invite to BIPOC, women, LGTBQ2S+, and socially disadvantaged community members to join us.
Applicants should have a passion for local food production, carbon farming, and regenerative agriculture.
Previous farm or garden experience is preferred but not necessary.
Candidates must demonstrate a strong desire to learn about small-scale, climate-smart agriculture.
- The program is generally delivered in English, y tambien se habla español!
Thanks so much to everyone interested in this training, congratulations to the first cohort to complete this farmer traiining program, we are very proud of y'all.
Stay tuned for future opportunities to apply for farmer training in the fall season 2022 and spring 2023!
