Are you interested in learning the basics of how to have a small farm in your own back yard? If so, come join us for a 6-week course geared toward teaching people with very small farms (under 10 acres) the basics on how to care for livestock and honeybees and how to grow your own fruits and vegetables. We will even discuss guidelines required for selling your products to consumers.

Clemson Extension's Home & Garden Information Center will offer classes in Greenville, SC at the Roper Mountain Science Center. This course starts April 18th and will meet each Tuesday from 2:30pm to 5:30pm thru May 23rd. County/Area Extension Agents and State Extension Specialist deliver information on beekeeping basics, livestock (goats, pigs and chickens), forages for livestock, small fruit and vegetable gardening, and state guidelines for selling direct to consumers. Class space is limited, so sign-up now!

The registration fee of $175 covers 6 classes, lesson materials and a field trip (TBD). Two SC pesticide re-certification credits will be available.
