In collaboration with Solid Ground School, I will deliver a 25 part Sustainable Agriculture and Entrepreneurship Training Course over a one year period to train and assist 9-to-12-year-old students in the planning and creation of small-scale agricultural enterprises. Working with a local videographer, we will record these sessions and edit them into an online educational video series exploring real-life business planning and implementation with a focus on sustainable agriculture production. The video series will be shared on social media and posted to the farm’s Youtube channel for easy access by the public and schools around the country.
Project objectives from proposal:
- Show elementary students that they are capable of creating and running a small farm business and provide them with the tools and guidance needed for success.
- Introduce children to the basic principles of sustainable agriculture.
- Inspire and empower other organizations and families to start their own school or neighborhood micro-businesses.
- Provide a reference video series for parents, educators, and youth interested in starting their own agriculture enterprise and business.
