On Saturday and Sunday, September 27th & 28th, Will Allen with Growing Power and WEI staff will convene at the WEI Farm Campus at North Branch, MN for an intensive, hands-on training weekend. This weekend offers urban and rural-based participants the opportunity to learn, plan, develop, operate, and sustain community food and farming projects. Project participants will acquire improved skills and knowledge they can take back to their communities and pass on to others.
Past workshops have covered how to:
Build a hoop house with friends and family in one weekend;
Grow mushrooms in your home;
Grow greens for health and income;
Make rich, healthy soil with worms and compost;
Do four-season growing in Minnesota;
Grow fish and greens indoors; And much more!
Scholarships and Volunteer Workshare opportunities available. WEI’s matching grant will cover half the tuition for people who need scholarships. Please fill out applications and return to firstname.lastname@example.org.
