Starting a Successful Hydroponic Business
- Suwannee Valley Agricultural Extension Center, Live Oak FL
This workshop is perfect for the small farmer wanting to start a business using controlled growing systems to provide high quality locally grown products for local markets, as well as families looking for an interesting hobby that will provide fresh flowers, vegetables, and herbs.
The course will feature hands-on activities inside 3 greenhouses, a shade house, and an outdoor production area.
The facility is one of the best in the southeast for teaching hydroponic growing in an actual operating greenhouse setting. The optional grower tour will be an exclusive visit inside one of the most successful and modern greenhouse hydroponic operations in Florida.
The goal of the Small Farms Academy is to train small farmers by providing unique, hands-on classes, workshops, and field days on specific topics in order to sustain existing small farms and increase the number of new small farms.
