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.
