Richmond Farm School

Richmond Farm School

Richmond Farm School is located on city owned agricultural land. It is both an educational and working farm that runs a weekly farmers market and works with local businesses to give students a well-rounded education and introduction into the industry.

Our 7-month, one day a week program has been designed to focus on semi-urban, regenerative farming - small-scale, intensive, high value, and cost-effective crop production with minimal infrastructure and capital investment. It is centered around experiential, hands on, and field-based learning alongside industry professionals.

Classes take place once a week on Saturday or Sundays and cover a variety of topics from soil science to pest management and are taught by a diverse group of teachers who are experts in their field.

This program is perfect for people wanting to take the leap into farming while still working/studying full-time. There are no prerequisites required to enroll, so click below to take the next step in your farming journey.
