Growing Places is organized into six modules, each addressing a different aspect of business development. Each session pulls in experts in that particular topic area to give depth to the lecture, discussion, and hands-on exercises that make up the course format. Farmer guest speakers and panelists are an important component, and by sharing their experiences with the group, offer a much appreciated realistic perspective.
The in person class will be offered simultaneously in multiple locations in Vermont, with an on-site instructor at each location. The online session is open to anyone with an Internet connection and uses the Blackboard platform.
Detailed information about the Growing Places curriculum is available at the Women's Agricultural Network (WAgN) website. Session information and the link to the registration form are also available at the WAgN site.
Scholarship and Financial Aid information: Some individuals may be eligible for scholarships or financial aid through either the Vermont Student Assistance Corporation or the Vermont Farm Women's Fund.
