Four Farms Market Garden Training Launches This Spring

This spring, Durham Region and Northumberland County will welcome the launch of the Four Farms Market Garden Training, a unique and immersive educational experience designed for individuals interested in exploring the world of regenerative farming and market gardening.

Through hands-on activities, expert guidance, and immersive learning experiences, students will gain invaluable knowledge and skills in regenerative market garden farming practices.
