PROGRAM

BEAN Beginning Entrepreneurs in Agriculture Networks Project

BEAN Project is an Urban Agriculture initiative Market Garden Training Program covers many aspects of beginning farming, from finding land to use, how to get started with farming and access local resources, as well as how to get started with the business side of the market garden and locate outlets for the gardener’s products. Also, starting in Fall 2011, we will begin our Refugee and Immigrant Farmer Training (RIFT) program. Based on the Market Gardener Training model, the program will target Immigrants or Refugees in the area who have interest in beginning a Market Garden operation." The BEAN Project is also including an "Urban Agriculture Innovation Zone. This 26 acre site is being established by the City of Cleveland, Ohio State University and other community, food and farm/garden organizations as a pilot site for local food and agriculture infrastructure."
