Carpool Saturday Free Event Calif New Farmer Academy Center for Land Based Learning, Winters 12/3 1-4pm

I want to organize a carpool to a free information session this Saturday at the Center For Land Based Learning in Winters.

California Farmer Academy - is a 6 week program - nights and weekends for busy working folks. It starts in January.

The average age of California farmers is 58 years old. They are retiring baby-boomers and many of their grown kids don't want to farm professionally. A grant from California Dept of Agriculture has funded Center for Land Based Learning to train new farmers. California creates $20 billion a year in speciality crops, fruits, vegetables, nuts, olives, etc - but there is a shortage of family farmers. There is a considerable amount of federal funding from the USDA and California State Dept of Agriculture to give low interest loan and FREE GRANT money to new, start-up organic farmers. Google "Greenhorns" for more info.

Center for Land Based Learning
5265 Putah Creek Road
Winters, CA 95694

Please RSVP to Jennifer@landbasedlearning.org
