Farmer Trainings

Welcome to Solid Ground Farmer Trainings, a program of UConn CAHNR Extension.  We so enjoyed putting on our Agro-Ecology and Ag-Mechanics trainings this year! For the next couple months we will be focusing on putting together new trainings and resources for you and will be excited to offer a 2022-2023 series in the coming months.
