'The world has forgotten that a farmer is a craftsman of the highest order' - Wendell Berry
Open your gates...
There is a resurgence of people across the world wanting to reconnect to where their food comes from or get started in an agricultural career. You would be surprised what people want to learn, whether you have developed detailed workshops or simply want to walk around your farm and tell your story. If you haven't already, take a look at the range of learning experiences that you are able to host on Farmfolk. It's really easy to get started, so don’t hold back, there is someone out there eager to learn from your life experiences.
How it works.
Once your post has been approved it will be live on the Farmfolk Learning Marketplace for people to find. We will suggest your course to people who's profiles are a match, but it's really important that you share your listing with your network to get the best results.
Now it's over to you to coordinate and host a fantastic learning experience. We are developing a range of toolkits and support materials to help with this, so stay tuned.
Once the learning experience is complete, you will get the opportunity to review the learners who attended, and they will offer reviews of your experience. This two-way review process helps to build trust and great reviews are the best promotion tool you have!
