In response to an unmet need in the region for entry-level beginning farmer courses, the California Farm Academy, a program of the Center for Land-Based Learning in Woodland, is offering a new program in 2021: the CFA Explorer Course. The Explorer Course will last for 6 weeks and accept a small cohort to allow for social distancing while exploring the field of farming firsthand.
A combination of online learning classes, farm tours, and hands-on field sessions, the CFA Explorer Course offers adults interested in farming their first introduction to the field. The Explorer Course will be offered for the first time May 22-July 3, 2021 and then again August 21- September 25.
There are limited spots left in the spring Explorer course! If you are interested, email firstname.lastname@example.org today. Also, email@example.com. The application portal will open in July for the fall Explorer course.
