Here’s a great opportunity to connect to the resurgence of interest in local food and agriculture that’s bubbling up in West Virginia right now.
Sprouting Farms is a nonprofit farm training center located in Summers County, which helps provide farmers with solid business management and production skills, mentorship, land and resources necessary to launch, experiment, and refine their farm businesses.
Sprouting Farms is now accepting apprenticeship and incubator farmer applications for the 2017 season. Here’s all the info about that.
Next week, Sprouting Farms will hold their first ever community meeting.
