Davidson County offers intro to sustainable farming program

This is a great program for people seriously interested in farming and within driving range of Lexigton, NC.  The Davidson County  Cooperative Extension is inviting prospective, beginning, and transitioning farmers to attend the 2012 Piedmont Farm School. The seven-month program is for individuals seriously considering or currently involved in farming and is designed to provide training in production practices and business planning, in order to help people operate successful small-scale, sustainable farms. Each month from February to June and September to October, the group will meet one evening for business training and on another day for a field trip to local farms. The cost is *very* reasonable and you can find all the details here.
