New Farmer Program – help needed to design course content

Nourish is working with Elmwood College and Skills Development Scotland to develop brand new training provision specifically for local food producers and new staff  - just like you. Can you spare 2 days to help Nourish design the content of our New Farmer Programme.

Nourish is preparing to start delivery in Jan 2013, and is putting together the syllabus just now.   They need the detailed thoughts on what to teach, from experienced small businesses who produce and market food direct to local customers.  Ideally they need 3 or 4 volunteers who could come to a day long meeting in Fife to brainstorm the content, and then follow up by commenting on the detail of the program as it is put together.

The courses will cover horticulture; simply processed food; local food marketing, and running a small business. So if you have several years experience of doing one of those and can contribute a couple of days of your time to help Nourish get this important training programme just right: then please get in touch with Eva Schonveld at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The meeting will be in late July/early August, in Fife.
