Applications are being accepted by the Lake Superior Sustainable Farming Association for a training program for adult beginning farmers.
The Lake Superior Farm Beginnings program, now in its fourth year, provides firsthand training in low-cost sustainable methods of farming and other aspects of farming. Classes are led by successful, innovative farmers. The program also can be helpful for experienced farmers who want to learn about new, sustainable approaches to farming.
Classroom sessions will be held from October to April at Thomson Town Hall in rural Esko. Farm tours and skill sessions will follow at farms in the region from May through September 2012.
Program cost is $1,100 per farm unit, which can include spouses or farm partners. Deadline to apply is Oct. 1. To get an application and information packet, call coordinator Cree Bradley at (218)
