Organic Farm School is a unique ten-week educational summer program composed of lectures, related readings, hands-on workshops and field trips related to sustainable agriculture, food justice and today’s local food movement, bringing urban farming and small rural farms together.
This is a farm school offered as a series, spanning from June 16 to August 11, or as many drop-in classes within that date range. The cost per class is $20.00, but to enroll for the entire series is just $120.00.
The Women’s Environmental Institute is a nonprofit organization with a rural campus in North Branch, MN. Our mission is to promote environmental justice and sustainable agriculture. Organic Farm School began in 2006 to educate and inform the public on organic food and farming and to support the expansion of organic gardening and farming in Minnesota.
