Like me, do you have dreams of quitting your office job and running your own farm? It has always seemed more like a fantasy than a dream, mostly because I grew up in the suburbs and have no idea how to get started. The New Entry Sustainable Farming Project is accepting applications for their spring farm business planning course, which can help teach you the basics of starting and running a farm. You can take the class in person or online, and classes start in January. The classes run for six weeks on Tuesday evenings. The course is $400 ($500 for online students), but substantial scholarships are available.
