NeVC: Using New Ways to Instruct and Inform Beginning Farmers

Using New Ways to Instruct and Inform Beginning Farmers--Throughout New York State there has been an increase in interest and desire to start farming by individuals that have little or no farm expertise. To provide learning opportunities for those interested in farming, an initiative was launched to develop a variety of distance learning materials. Website, online courses and webinars have been developed on specific topics with the list of courses being offered expanding. It is the hope of the facilitators to have a dialogue among those participating to share ideas on how distance learning has been and could be used to educate and inform people interested in farming.
