Farmer Training Program Registration

Farm to Table-Guam, Corp. is offering a FREE training program that is designed for those with little or no growing experience, or those with some experience that want to take it to the next level and have an opportunity to earn an additional income or start a small farm business.

We understand that access to land poses a hurdle for many, so we’ve custom built different sized hoop houses, raised beds and grow tables that will serve as a model for participants in which they can adapt according to their grow space and personal goals.

Our specialized program offers a mix of small group trainings, farm tours, hands-on learning at the Guam Department of Agriculture Organic Model Farm, one on one site visits and ongoing mentorship.  Our team will assist with start-up by providing a site visit, help you create a farm plan, teach best practices, troubleshoot and guide participants along the way, providing resources for your micro-farm business to be successful. Our organization will also assist with sales throughout the course of the program so you can spend more time on your farm. Through this personalized training program, we are confident you will achieve your goals of starting your very own micro-farm or market garden.

As a collective of backyard growers, urban farmers and market gardeners, by growing together, we can achieve the overall goal of contributing to our island’s food security.

Gain the knowledge and skills needed to launch your own small-scale farm. This FREE program gives you on-the-farm experience and business resources needed to successfully operate your own farm.
