The North Carolina Arboretum launches its 2009 adult education series with a new workshop on Jan. 31, “First Steps in Starting a Market Garden Business,” led by Peter Marks, director of the Local Food and Farm Campaign for the Appalachian Sustainable Agriculture Project (ASAP). The workshop is free and will be held from 2-4 p.m.

Participants will learn five important first steps every young or second-career farmer should consider before embarking on a market garden business. “Many people dream of farming, but few succeed in building viable farm businesses that contribute to or provide their income,” Marks said. “For anyone who has thought about growing food to earn part or all of their income, this workshop will take an honest look at what is involved to turn a dream into reality.”
