Live the dream

farm dreamer (TLC)

The Land Connect and Illinois Extension do a great job planning the Central Illinois Farm Dreams workshops. The 2008 workshops are now scheduled. For more information, or to register, visit the website or contact The Land Connection — 847/570-0701. These are for people serious about organic farming. Very practical information shared by real farmers.

In the Farm Dreams workshops, you will:

  • be introduced to farmers doing various types of farm businesses, and to existing farmer training opportunities
  • do self-assessment exercises to determine your need for, e.g. resources for land, capital, training, and markets
  • identify next steps in pursuing your farming goals
  • leave Farm Dreams with a clear idea about what is possible and what the risks are, so that you are better prepared to decide whether a farming business is the right fit for you at this time

Each interactive workshop is 4 hours long, includes a light supper, and costs $30.
