This week we had the opportunity to train staff working in Tricyle’s Urban Agriculture Certificate & Fellowship Program in Richmond, Virginia.  This eleven-month long intensive training program allows participants to earn a Certificate in Urban Agriculture recognized by USDA-National Resources Conservation Service. During the course of the program participants gain experience in sustainable agriculture skills and practices on urban farm sites, engage with community members through Tricycle’s mission programs, network with local farmers, food system leaders and subject matter experts, and attend workshops with renowned guest speakers in the food and farming fields.
