Urban Agriculture Open House with UConn Extension

Crops planted in the ground

Learn about KNOX’s Incubator Farming Program and tour the Hartford Grown Headquarters farm. In partnership with UConn, KNOX will host a yearlong urban farmer training program in Hartford starting in the fall of 2016. This program is perfect for community gardeners who would like to scale up their production levels to sell at local markets. This is an incredible opportunity for Hartford residents to receive top-of-the-line training in urban agriculture. Attend the open house, meet the educators, and learn how you can become the next class of urban farmers at KNOX!

Meet UConn Extension Professors German Cutz and Joseph Bonelli.
