Trainer Sharing Program

  • Are you short a trainer for your class?  Do you need someone to fill in for a couple of modules?  We can help.  The Center has funds to help bring in trainers to your state to ensure every farmer has an equal chance to attend a PSA class near them.  Contact Ellen for details.

New Trainer Mentorship Program
