Farm School 2014

Wednesday | May 14, 2014 — Saturday | September 27, 2014

18 Reasons and the Bi-Rite Farm are delighted to offer the opportunity to get your hands dirty during this ten session immersion course, running May through September 2014.

Farm School is geared for adults who want to learn about the life, economics, and labor of small scale organic farming. The course includes five lectures at 18 Reasons and five farming days at the Bi-Rite Farm, with additional excursions to surrounding farms and gardens. The Wednesday lectures will take you through the logistics and business of starting a rural or urban farm; the Saturday farm sessions will put you on-site digging, planting, weeding and harvesting – hands-on, experiential learning.

While this is not a comprehensive, collegiate-level course, the 18 Reasons Farm School is perfect for folks who are interested in growing food and who desire to gain a deeper understanding of the politics and practicalities of small scale organic farming in the Bay Area.
