Haliburton Farm is considered an “incubator farm” – meaning it’s fertile ground for new farmers to learn to run an organic farming business, offering time-limited access to certified organic land and knowledge about organic farming. Our farmers, who have already acquired their core farming skills through internships and experience, pledge commitment to working as and for the farming community, and are given a plot to work to earn their own farming income. At the end of their terms they give way to a new set of young farmers. It’s an attractive model, and one that you can learn more about at a half-day class on January 21 at The Gardens at HCP, when our farmer-educator Elmarie Roberts together with Linda Geggie of CR-FAIR, will host a workshop on food security and incubator farming. Interested? Reserve your spot: it’s only $15.
