The UVM Extension New Farmer Project is seeking funding to develop a tractor education curriculum and train-the-trainer project that will be broadly available to help provide basic tractor safety, basic use and maintenance, and decision-making education to Northeast small scale and diversified farms. They are proposing to offer training that uses a variety of in-person and online formats to prepare participants to deliver tractor education for beginning farmers and farm employees, interns and apprentices.
Please take a few moments to fill out this short survey to help gauge priority topics and approaches for this type of training. Your input will help them design a project that will assist new farmers who are working to scale up their operations and established farmers who need appropriately trained employees.
