The next Alaska Growers School begins September 24th. The training is offered by UAF-Cooperative Extension Service and will be offered by webinar and teleconference on Wednesdays at 5:30 P.M. through December 17th. The Growers School is ideal for Alaskans who wish to start a farm or expand an existing one for profit or subsistence.
The training will emphasize farm planning and risk management, but will include the basics of whole farm planning, growing vegetables, berries and fruit, raising poultry and livestock and using seasonal extension techniques. Resources for financial and technical expertise and loan programs also are covered.
