I understand that if I am selected as a SAGE participant, I will be committing myself to at least a two hour commitment per month for workshop related activities. I understand these workshops are typically held on weekdays post business hours or weekend mornings. Additionally, during the growing and market season (May-August), I understand that my SAGE involvement will be an average of 20-25 hours per month. This commitment includes at least one Saturday per month. *
I understand that participation in SAGE requires a $175 participation fee and that upon successfully completion of all SAGE workshops, I will receive $75 back to reinvestment back into my agribusiness.
