Build Your Ag Skills

Agricultural Skills Course

Ag Skills provides a season of hands-on learning for beginning farmers. From building soil, best techniques for irrigation, how to increase soil productivity, deal with pests to harvest and packing, each class focuses on tangible skills necessary for farming success in the foothills.  Peer-to-peer classes are taught on-farm, by farmers and each includes a farm tour.   Ag Skills courses are geared towards commercial farmers and are a great way to network within the farming community and hone your farming skillset. 

Scholarships available!  BIPOC, LGBTQI+, veteran, women farmers and farmer workers are encouraged to apply. Email molly@sierraharvest.org with questions.

Check back in spring 2023 for the full list of classes and the registration information.

I’m going to be planting flowers for beneficial insects and for cutting, testing my soil,
