Farmer Education

At the Rio Grande Farm Park, our goal is to empower farmers to start their own businesses successfully. We partner with professionals in regenerative agriculture and business development to provide educational opportunities for farmers throughout Southern Colorado. Field trips, peer-learning workshops, and classes from business professionals are made available to farmers, always with Spanish translation available.

If you are a farmer interested in educational opportunities, notify erin.slvlocalfoods@gmail.com so that we can keep you up-to-date with the latest offerings.

If you are interested in leading a workshop, please contact addelina.slvlocalfoods@gmail.com.

Our latest workshop brought in professionals from Main Street Project in Minnesota to teach farmers about poultry-raising. See their website to learn more about the organization.
