Workshop to explore how to start a small farm

Join WSU Extension Regional Small Farms Program for the workshop, “Is a Small Farm in Your Future?,” set for 9 a.m.-noon on Wednesday, Sept. 20, at the new WSU Clallam County Extension office, 1914 W. 18th St., in Port Angeles.

Whether participants are in the planning stages or have just begun, this three-hour intensive workshop will help determine what options are available, explore potential markets and profitability for different enterprises, network with others and learn what it takes to begin and sustain a small-scale farming business.

The workshop is a precursor to the 12-week “Cultivating Success: Whole Farm Planning” that runs Sept. 25-Dec.4.

The primary topics covered in the Sept. 20 workshop include setting goals, assessing resources, taking a personal inventory, exploring market gardens and livestock enterprises through a panel of guest speakers, and networking with other farmers and extension educators.

Cost is $15 per person. Scholarships are available for military veterans and anyone for whom the course fee is a barrier. Pre-registration is required.
