This event will bring together Young Agrarians from across the province with speakers, stories and conversations with fellow aspiring and new farmers, just like you! Sessions will focus on practical skills for new farmers like financial planning, bookkeeping, finding land, starting your business, and production planning.
They will be hosting the event at a camp in Central Alberta with space for everyone to stay overnight and take advantage of the amazing network of people we will be bringing together and the valuable learning that you won’t want to miss.
