The Farming Intensive is a highly condensed version of Calypso’s 5-month, residential Farmer Training Program, designed for individuals looking to launch their own small-scale farm or home food garden, but who are unable to commit to a full-length program. The Farming Intensive introduces a broad array of small-scale farming techniques, preparing participants with a crash-course in growing, homesteading and business planning. By the end of the course, all participants will have the materials necessary to develop their own Whole Farm Plan, covering all the necessary areas for a successful food project.
