Urban Farm Dreams: Assessing Risks & Resources to Start a Market Garden
Have you ever dreamed of having your own farm in the city? Do you wonder how to move from dream to reality? In this interactive workshop, the Learning Center's Program Director in Chicago, Martha Boyd, guides participants to map their steps to the urban farm business of their dreams.
- Alex Needham and Alison Parker, 2013 Beginning Farmers of the Year, will share insights from the evolution of their CSA, Radical Root Organic Farm.
- Katie Wiegman, Garden Manager, will describe her experience farming in proprietary gardens of two restaurants: Big Delicious Planet and Bayless Organic Garden
Participants will leave the workshop with more clarity about their own vision and process needed to move it forward. This special offering of Angelic Organics Learning Center’s Farm Dreams workshop in Chicago is sponsored by Windy City Harvest’s urban farmer training program.
