FarmStart Growers' Support Course
Are you interested in growing food for a living?
Considering a career working on the land?
Have a dream to be an organic farmer?
Wondering if this is for you?
This project is the first step in achieving our 10-year vision of thriving small-scale local farms providing food and meaningful employment for local people.
The project aims to enable you to:
- develop the skills, expertise and experiences that are required for small-scale sustainable commercial growing
- be part of a network of local people with a shared vision for a local food economy which also provides wider community benefits
- access dedicated structured volunteer opportunities for participants to build experience and expertise with local farms and farmers
- have an opportunity to input to the development of the full Lancaster FarmStart scheme which aims to set up on a local 3 acre site within the next year
The deadline for booking a place on this programme is 31 March. We will respond to all applications for the programme by 12 April.
