New Farmer University
Marbleseed hosts incredible events for farmers across the Midwest, and we couldn't be more honored that they asked PIFF to co-host one of their best programs: New Farmer U.
We look forward to bringing this program to you in 2024! There's still lots to figure out, but here's what we know:
New Farmer U is a two-day / overnight program for beginning farmers, with lots of farmer-to-farmer learning PLUS time set aside for sharing meals, good conversation, and campfires.
We're hoping for 50-75 participants. The cost will be $100, and include lodging and meals. We will have 10 full scholarships set aside.
Although New Farmer U is part of Marbleseed's efforts, in true collaborative style, they help provide support and outreach, but they leave the organizing to us. Marbleseed has asked PIFF to set the agenda to match what beginning farmers in Indiana need. Expect lots of farmer-to-farmer time, zero talking heads, and lots of small group breakouts.
