This multi-day workshop will provide beginning and experienced forest farmers with the tools, knowledge, and resources they need to take their small-scale or hobby operation to the next level. The event will provide classes on specific best business practices, as well as peer-to-peer learning opportunities through workshops led by forest farmers who have built their own successful businesses. We will explore the intersections and divergences between the financial opportunities available to forest farmers and the draw of working on the land, and how to build an operation that allows you to incorporate what you love with what’s commercially viable. We will also explore cost share opportunities, and the economic trade-offs to consider before deciding between full-time and part-time forest farming.
The cost for the workshop (Friday-Sunday) is $80 in advance and $100 on site. Advanced registration is preferred and will be available through September 7th. Lodging is available on site at Camp Oty’Okwa and can be added to your workshop registration at a cost of $18/night per person.
