These classes were created to help new farmers and farmsteaders develop the skills they need to begin their small farm journeys. They are online, skills-based learning programs designed to make farming knowledge and non-industrial practices more accessible to a new landscape of aspiring farmers, homesteaders, and artisans.
Instructors are all real farmers from the LGBTQIA+ community teaching from experience and we are committed to creating a safe, supportive, and inspiring learning environment.
Our first classes began online November 2022 and are listed below with more added each season. If you would like to be notified when more classes open or when seasonal classes become available, sign up at the bottom of the page.
