This introductory workshop is designed for beginning farmers and ranchers to establish and sustain viable agricultural operations through whole farm planning programs.

Instructors from Virginia State University’s Small Farm Outreach Program include agents Derrick Cladd, Alvin Adkins and Patrick Johnson. Together, they are very familiar with most agricultural education opportunities across Virginia and can show new farmers where to get the help they need for any farming enterprise.

The Introduction to Whole Farm Planning workshop is free and open to the public.
Class size is limited, and participants must RSVP. No walk-ins will be allowed.

For more information, contact the Small Farm Outreach Program Office at (804) 524-5626 or Small Farm Agent Patrick Johnson ( / 804-586-8280).
