A free, GoFarm Hawaii program open house on Hawai‘i Island will be held on Saturday, Aug. 25, 2018, from 9 to 11 a.m. at the GoFarm Hawaii Field Training Site in Honoka‘a. Attendees can learn how they can apply for upcoming phases of the GoFarm Hawaii program.

Visit the GFH training site, where the farm courses take place, and decide for yourself if farming is in your future.

Meet the GFH Hawai‘i Island farm coach and other graduates from the GoFarm Hawaii program while taking a short tour of the farm area in Honoka‘a.

GoFarm Hawaii Island offers three phases of farming perspective.

First is the AgCurious Open House, where attendees will be given an overview of what the GFH program has to offer and a chance to see the training site, understand the time commitment, cost and
process to apply to the next phase.

The second phase is AgXposure, which is open to all AgCurious attendees. In this phase, participants will have an opportunity to attend a number of farm visits and workdays alongside successful farmers, test their wherewithal for farm work and evaluate if farming is still the path they want to take.

Third, is AgSchool. This is where beginning farmer training really starts. The school’s farm coach will
guide participants through the process of their very own “starter kit” to farming. Participants will be taught skills to produce food and to scale production. Learn hands on science and situational strategies for productive farming and start building a network with the cohort selected.
