Welcome to the wonderful world of agriculture! There are abundant resources to support your new passion, and we have listed some below to get you started. In addition to learning on your own, we always encourage getting to know your local ag community. There are years of wisdom planted in a farmer's brain!
- The Center for Land Based Learning has several resources and courses available for new farmers, including their California Farm Academy.
- Wild Willow Farm & Education Center offers regular workshops and classes, and hosts an 8-week Farm School every Summer and Winter to teach the basics of regenerative agriculture.
- Check out our YouTube channel for recordings of past workshops on soil health, pollinator habitat, prescribed grazing, and more!
Be sure to subscribe to our monthly Farmer and Rancher newsletter to stay up to date on workshops, funding opportunities, and stay connected to our local ag community.
