Adult Farm Camp is your opportunity to get all your questions answered by the founders of Green Gate Farms/New Farm Institute. No topic is off limits as we review the behind-the-scenes of running certified organic, community farms since 2006.
After a farm tour where you will get hands-on opportunities with tools and equipment, participants will discuss topics ranging from how to choose property, livestock, and crops to what organizations can help you succeed. This class meets outdoors beside the Big Red Barn (8310 Canoga Ave., Austin 78724) so wear comfortable shoes, dress for the weather and bring a notebook and lunch. We'll provide the rest.
Camps are limited to 10 participants. No refunds, but you can transfer to another class time as available. Contact us to learn about scholarships.
