About our Programs

Groundswell offers hands-on experiential education in agriculture for anyone interested in learning more about farming and the local food system in the Finger Lakes region. We have designed courses that are appropriate for people at all levels, from just starting out, to those who have been farming for as many as 10 years or more.

Below is a guide to our 2016 Courses to help you determine what might be most appropriate based on your level of experience. Courses are explained in greater detail HERE.
