SustainFloyd has now run two series of farming workshops for beginner farmers and gardeners. Floyd has some good agricultural land, not the big swaths of flat land that are needed for large scale agriculture, but small pockets of land suited to small scale, intentional farming. This is a good location for developing specialty crops and specialty value added foods. Our workshops provided basic information for someone wanting to start a new farming enterprise or someone who has some experience and would like glean more information and share questions. We plan to follow up on these classes with some workshops on specific topics.
