Jon and I are very lucky that we have the opportunity to participate in the Farm Beginnings class. This is a 10 week program geared towards educating new farmers. One of the best features of this class is the networking. Every week we get to talk to local growers and producers in the area. It's been such a great help to both of us. It's so encouraging to hear from people who are doing their part to make Nebraska a more sustainable farming culture. If you are ever interested in learning more about sustainable agriculture in Nebraska, we both would highly recommend this class.
Here are a few links:
Nebraska Sustainable Agriculture Society
Sustainable Agriculture Research and Development
Nebraska Food Coop
And my personal favorite:
And if you're around the Iowa area March 5th, Ethan an Iowa area farmer and blogger will be speaking at the Iowa Network for Community Agriculture conference. I would be very interested to hear him speak!
And because I can't leave without posting at least one picture here ya go:
