2018-19 Field School Winter Business Intensive Registration

The Field School is a Beginning Farmer Training Program for farmers in Northeast TN and Southwest VA. Our mission is to provide a comprehensive overview of farm options for new and beginning farmers interested in starting or expanding small and mid-scale operations in the region.

New this year, we are splitting the Field School into two programs: the Winter Business Intensive and the Summer Field School. The WBI will consist of 9 classes on business planning, finances, and marketing, with the intent that students complete a comprehensive business plan by the end of the course. You can read a detailed description about the Field School and the calendar of workshops available at our website: www.arcd.org/field-school.

We have limited spots available and you will need to send payment in order to confirm your application. The fee for the Winter Business Intensive is $125.

Send checks payable to "Appalachian RC&D Council" to:

We look forward to exploring farming options in East TN with you this year!
