USDA Beginning Farmer/Rancher Development Grant gets “Growing”!

The NCAT western regional office is currently working on USDA funded Beginning Farmer/Rancher Development grant titled, “ Growing Roots”, a collaborative effort among 5 partner organizations to increase networking among beginning farmers and ranchers and to offer training and technical assistance at 12 “agricultural learning hub” locations. Over the course of the next two years, the NCAT western regional office will be delivering almost 70 workshops for beginning farmers and ranchers in California on topics such as; ecological production practices, marketing, farm business planning, pastured poultry and pork production, food safety and the cottage food law. Additionally, this year we will be creating practical tipsheets, short videos and informational pieces in English, Spanish and Hmong languages. So, if you are a beginning farmer with 10 years or less of experience, these workshops could be for you!
