Grow Your Farm Business Course: Why Equity Needs To Be The Foundation of Your Farm Business

February 26 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm EST

Instructors: Alexas Esposito, Natalie Hughes

Agri-culture is based on the relationship between humans and the land, focusing on the way in which land is cultivated to provide sustenance for a community. Tracing a history from colonialism to modern industrialization, conventional agriculture has evolved into a largely exploitative practice across race, gender, and class.

If we broaden the horizon to gain perspective on the history of agriculture as it relates to land and race, we can begin to understand what equity and justice mean in our farming practices, and explore ways in which we can implement equity in farm businesses.

In this session we will deepen our knowledge on the intersection of agriculture, race and land, and explore different ways farmers are incorporating their commitment to justice into their business models.

The Grow Your Farm Business Course is offered on a sliding scale fee structure. The sliding scale for the full course is $100 – $350. A second person from a single farm can come for half price. Select Individual courses are $20-$40 sliding scale each.

Registration for the full course is available here, and registration for individual classes is available here.

For any questions about sliding scale options or payment please email Liz@groundswellcenter.org
