In order to supplement the education Glynwood apprentices receive in our fields and in the classroom, we participate in the Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training (CRAFT), a model for sharing complementary farm training among a network of participating farms.
Mid-Hudson CRAFT participants visit host farms for a tour, talk or demonstration on a specific topic. These visits offer farmers-in-training exposure to a number of diverse farm enterprises, as well as opportunities to develop practical skills and network with other farmers and apprentices.
The 2021 Mid-Hudson CRAFT schedule can be found here; you can also copy the schedule to your Google Calendar. Join the CRAFT mailing list for updates prior to each tour, and reach out to Kate Anstreicher if you have any questions.
*Mid Hudson CRAFT is able to provide Spanish language translation and interpretation upon request, as funds are available, in order to increase the accessibility of these educational opportunities.
