Graduation for the “Beginning Farmer Training Program”

Saturday was the graduation ceremony for the 11 participants of the 2013 Beginning Farmer Training Program. These 11 dynamic adults were a huge part of the 2013 growing season at Henry Got Crops. I am so lucky to have worked with them, and learned alongside them. The participants already have business plans completed for their future projects. Some of these include: a nutrition education based farm at a local church, an herb business, a composting business, managing a farm for the urban farming organization Teens4Good, and a farm that grows culturally appropriate vegetables for the Nepali community is South Philadelphia.
