If you are a farmer, farm manager, or farm educator with a passion for mentoring new farmers, deepen your mentorship skills at an upcoming full-day workshop called “Mapping the Mentor’s Journey.” Experienced mentors Tim Drake and Jed Jordan and leadership coach Corinne Eisenman will lead hands-on exercises and conversations that examine farm education through the eyes of a mentor. Participants will take away new tools and a renewed passion for educating aspiring farmers and managing farm staff.
This all-day workshops takes place Sunday, February 10th in Ithaca, NY. Space is limited, so please RSVP by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org with answers to two of these three questions:
- What skills would you like to share with other individuals wanting to start a farm?
- What experiences inspired you to pursue your farming dreams?
- How do you believe you can contribute lasting change to your community as a farmer?
The workshop is a collaboration between Primitive Pursuits, which fosters life-long connections with nature, and Groundswell Center for Local Food & Farming, dedicated to nurturing the next generation of farmers.
