Groundswell Center offers hands-on education in technical farming and sustainable land-use practices and food justice. All of our programming is led by farmers and mentors active in food, farming or social justice. Workshops are appropriate for producers of all levels, from gardeners and beginning farmers to experienced farm business owners.

A sliding scale fee structure and solidarity pricing helps make all of our services affordable. See prices within each workshop for details.
