Get training on urban farming

The Massachusetts Avenue Project (MAP) is hosting an Urban Agriculture Training program the weekend of March 7.

Training will focus on the skills needed to run a successful community garden, youth program and urban farm, based on the model established by MAP on the West Side during the past decade.

Participants will gain hands-on experience and information on fish farming, urban chickens, farm planning, starting a community garden, composting and more. The training also will highlight MAP’s focus on youth employment and education, offering workshops on youth leadership.

New this year will be a Farm-to-School Panel and an Urban Farming and CSA Panel, including regional experts.
