Event description

Description

Now in its sixth year, the NIFTI National Field School supports professional development and network building for Incubator Farm Project staff from across the country. The Field School is structured around interactive workshops, facilitated resource review sessions and regional networking and goal-setting opportunities, with ample time to connect with others working in your unique field. A farm tour of the Agriculture and Land Based Training Association will introduce you to the work of one of the oldest incubator projects in the United States.

Collaboration with ISED Solutions will allow for the inclusion of workshops led by and designed for refugee serving incubator projects. A pre-conference for refugee serving projects will include sessions focused on resource sharing and network building. Addition of the ISED pre-conference includes dinner and lodging on Monday November 6, as well as meals all day November 7 leading into the NIFTI conference

Asilomar State Park is a picturesque seaside backdrop for the work of discussing best practice, developing new tools and connections, and imagining how to strengthen the capacity of beginning farmer training programs across the country.

In addition to session workshops and discussions, expect to hear stories from the field during our NIFTI Story Hour, and to circle up with other program staff during an evening bonfire.
