The last eight Sunday afternoons Linda’s been part of a team that is teaching a class for aspiring new farmers. It is designed as a quick start/introduction as opposed to a two-year degree program.
After completing this class, the graduates will be able to rent a portion of the college farm to start their farming enterprise.
The class attracted a wide range of people, including Anglo, Hispanic, Sudanese, and Meskwaki members. The class has already started planning some cooperative marketing and looks forward to the planting season to put into practice some things they’ve learned.
