RECOMMENDED AGRICULTURE EDUCATION FIRM
POSTED BY ANN BARNHARDT – FEBRUARY 8, AD 2013 8:34 AM MST

Many urban, suburban and newly relocated to rural area people email asking for remedial instruction in all things agricultural: farming, husbandry, pasture management, etc. I taught a cattle marketing school up in Montana earlier this week and one of the attendees was a chap who owns a company that does exactly this: agricultural education via the web for both adults AND junior high-high school aged kids. He has 18 separate curricula right now, and is expanding. He has students worldwide, including a significant following of homeschoolers – both the kids and the parents.

If you want to get smart on agricultural skillsets from your own home, at your own pace, inexpensively with online instructor support, I recommend:

    Dang it, comments are off up in Ann Barnhardt’s story, so I’ll post this here since it’s related.

    Take a look at Hugelkultur.

    Those aren’t the only way to do HugelKultur, but they may be the simplest and are time tested
