2021 Columbia Basin Farm Club Event Series Announced!

Posted by Hailey Troock on June 07, 2021

Join Young Agrarians and friends for a Columbia Basin event series this season on- and off-farm to learn together and support each other! We’ll be gathering online and in-person from June through December. Some sessions we’ll have an expert guest join and other sessions, we’ll share with each other.

What is a Farm Club? Farm Club is when farmers come together to connect and nerd out with other farmers. It can be on any topic the group wants to discuss and can take many different shapes and sizes.

Read on for more information about each event and stay tuned here for more information and to register.
