Welcome to Term 2 of the New Farmer Training Program!
Term 2 focuses on applying farm language and knowledge, and consists of 8 workshops, 6 half-day Field Days, and 4 Farm Tour Workshop Days.
All events in Term 2 are on Wednesdays. The workshop days run from 9-4:30pm with a 1.5 hr break for lunch. Bring a bag lunch to eat with the farm staff, picnic outside, or drive to nearby restaurants. There may be an optional work-bee. You will be notified ahead of time about the nature of the task. For specific timing, see individual session details below. There will be 1.5hrs for lunch and travel to the next location when two locations are included on the same day.
Unless otherwise specified, all sessions take place in Room 236 at the Orchard Park Office Centre, on the Ignatius Farm property in Guelph.
