Join other new farmers for support and camaraderie learning about whole farm planning. The course will be designed for multiple partipants from the same farm to attend and work together during the sessions.

This course is a collaborative effort between UNH Cooperative Extension, University of Vermont Cooperative Extension, and Holistic Management International. The course is for farmers who are in the first 10 years of farming. It is most effective for farmers who have been in production for at least a year or two. This course focuses on whole farm planning using the Holistic Management process. Participants will meet for seven sessions on topics that include goal setting; time management; financial, business, and marketing planning, and communication and leadership on farms. It will be an interactive class that supports participants to complete a whole farm plan by the conclusion of the course.
