Throughout the year, New Entry holds dozens of classes, advanced workshops, online trainings, farm tours and field trainings for beginning and established farmers, World PEASCSA customers, and the general public. Almost all of our events require some form of pre-registration but most are free or very low-cost to attend. Filter our events below by your area of interest and then let us know you're coming. We can't wait to see you on the farm!
Come explore, learn, connect and unwind with fellow Incubator Farm Project staff from across the country. This year will include:
• Workshops on best practice related to Incubator Farm Project design and implementation.
• Discussion sessions for digging deep and getting creative.
• Farm visit to the Agriculture and Land Based Training Association.
• Opportunities to stretch, move and relax on the seaside with people who intimately understand your work!
New Entry Sustainable Farming Project's Community Food Systems Conference will address common underlying themes between food security, social justice and sustainable agriculture including obstacles in urban and rural environments and fostering community empowerment to create and sustain resilient local food systems. This conference is possible thanks to funding from the Community Food Projects grant program of USDA's National Institute of Food and Agriculture.
We will provide space for conversations around promoting, facilitating, and supporting self-reliance; breaking down barriers to racial justice; connecting communities to their food sources; and impacting communities at the local and regional level through sustainable food production.
