Participants in the New Entry Farmer Training Program and all Farm Business Planning Class graduates and the general public are welcome to attend our bi-monthly Spring/Summer Field Training Series. These on-farm workshops focus on building practical skills on topics including organic agricultural production and marketing, food and farm safety, greenhouse management, small equipment use and maintenance, pest management, irrigation, and soil and water conservation and provide the practical field component of our farmer training program.
All field trainings take place at one of New Entry's farm incubator sites; the site is noted in the field training schedule below. The Ogonowski Memorial Fields address is 100 Jones Ave, Dracut, MA and the Smith-Healy Farm address is 300 Jones Ave, Dracut. The field trainings are free for graduates of New Entry's Farm Business Planning Course and Farmer Training Program, and for the general public. It is helpful if you can email John Short if you plan to attend a field training at firstname.lastname@example.org.
