thanks to all of our attendees, sponsors & volunteers for a successful 2014 farm-based education season!
What is PASA's Farm-Based Education Programming?
The goal of PASA’s Farm-Based Education (FBE) programming is to empower farmers to implement farming practices that improve farm profitability and reduce the farm’s adverse environmental impact while producing safe and healthy food for the community. FBE events strive to offer delicious, local meals and provide ample farmer-to-farmer networking opportunities.
Our FBE programming isand occasionally classroom-based workshops that utilize a farmer-to-farmer teaching model. Field Days are usually hosted at a PASA member farm, run from 10am - 4pm and include a farm tour. Some Field Days and workshops may have a participation limit to facilitate hands-on, focused learning. Most Field Days follow our subsidized pricing structure of $20 for PASA & event partner members, and $35 for non-members. Depending upon the nature of the event, fees may vary and are driven according to the market, materials used and experience level of the program. All events include meals in which we strive to highlight local ingredients.
Companies can become an FBE event sponsor and reach their target audience while helping to keep our Field Days and Intensive Learning Programs affordable for farmers.
Individuals can make a contribution to support PASA's efforts to provide affordable and meaningful educational and networking opportunities to farmers.
