Abstract


Resources for demonstrations and interactive learning activities are integral in reaching a higher level of learning and practice adoption by our clientele. The Small Farms Academy specializes in interactive learning opportunities for small farmers. Reduced funding has limited the ability of some agents to provide indepth training opportunities and shrinking household budgets have limited the agents’ ability to charge a program fee. With that in mind, the NE District Green Team has capitalized on the academy resources and extends their use for district-wide Master Gardeners and homeowner trainings.
