About the event

“The goal of sustainable agriculture is to meet society’s food and textile needs in the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Practitioners of sustainable agriculture seek to integrate three main objectives into their work: a healthy environment, economic profitability, and social and economic equity.” ~ UC SAREP

Farming is a business, and to make it sustainable it needs to be financially viable. In this no-cost workshop you will learn the details of starting and funding a farming business, learn hands-on how to figure your startup costs and write a streamlined and simple business plan that works for you. Then learn how to use your plan as-is to start your farm and how leverage your plan as a starting point for a more traditional business plan to secure financing or partners.
