The goal of Cultivating Success™ is to create and implement educational programs to increase the number and foster the success of sustainable small acreage farmers and ranchers.
The WSU Cultivating Success™ Program consists of two courses, Whole Farm Planning and Agricultural Entrepreneurship, and an On-Farm Internship Program. The goal of these educational opportunities is to provide beginning and existing farmers with the planning and decision-making tools, production skills, and support necessary to develop a sustainable farm or food business. Cultivating Success™ connects the student with farmers and exposes them to real world situations through a community-based, experiential approach. Whether you are a community member wanting to learn the basics of farming/ranching or an experienced farmer/rancher wanting to try something new – Cultivating Success™ provides educational opportunities for anyone interested in the knowledge and skills you need to be successful!
The Whole Farm Planning, and Agricultural Entrepreneurship courses are offered in various locations around Washington to audiences that include new and experienced farmers, academic students, immigrant farmers, and agricultural professionals. See if there’s a course coming up near you!
