Here’s what people are saying about Ag Skills:
“A truly fantastic learning experience made all the more impressive considering the obstacles COVID 19 and the fires present to any classroom. Sierra Harvest goes above and beyond to ensure safety; all present are masked-up, classes take place outdoors, all are reminded of the importance of practicing social distancing, N-95 masks were distributed to all given smoky air quality. I’ve signed up for every class I can get my hands on and have been wildly impressed and informed with each. Thank you Cam and the entire Sierra Harvest team for your brilliant work!”
Note: COVID-19 protocols at Ag Skills classes include outdoor venues, social distancing, face masks, and hand hygiene to ensure a safe space for class participants and host farms.
