Urban Farmer Certification Program accepting applicants for 2012
The Pringle Creek Community Urban Farmer Certification Program is now accepting applicants for the Urban Farmer Certification Class for 2012. This is a great opportunity for anyone curious about learning to garden in the urban setting.
Urban Farmer Certification is an opportunity to learn how to grow your own food in an urban setting. Classes are taught by real farmers and OSU Master Gardeners, and include both classroom discussion and experiential learning in the field. Students are expected to demonstrate skills in their own garden setting in order to obtain certification.
Schedule: Ten classes between January and October 2012 on the 2nd Saturday of each month. 10am - 12pm.
Cost: $60 per person, 20% discount for FSSM members and couples. Scholarships available.
Space is limited to 25 students. To apply, please send an email with a brief narrative on “Why I want to participate in this program” to Nicole McDavid at firstname.lastname@example.org. Call 503-315-1055 for more details. All applications are due by December 15th, 2011. Visit the Pringle Creek website to see the current UFC flyer.
