Service Description

This 60-hour introductory course teaches the fundamentals of regenerative sustainable farming and is appropriate for those of all experience levels, whether you already grow your own food and want to improve your practices, or just want to spend more time with the soil and are curious as to how food grows. Farming 101 is fully scalable and can be applied to container gardening (pots, hanging baskets, vertical gardens), backyards, building community gardens, all the way up to a small-scale working farm. After completing this 7-week course, you will understand the ecology of cultivation, the food web, generating strong healthy living soil for strong healthy harvests, agricultural sustainability, and much more! Students are actively learning and practicing farming skills while participating as vital members of the Wild Willow Farm community and meeting like-minded people. This system provides you with the framework to develop a well-rounded set of farming skills and the freedom to explore and specialize in your interest areas. Each week will focus on a specific topic that begins with a Wednesday lecture followed by hands-on knowledge application on Saturday (lab days) at the farm. Farming 101 covers: making living soil, bed building, propagation, irrigation, integrated pest management (IPM), and holistic care.
