Every Spring and Autumn we offer full-day intensive workshops to farmers, homesteaders, and backyard gardeners to give participants the hands-on experience that, for many of us, is the best way to learn... by doing. Learn about the science and mechanics behind our multi-award winning, no-till, agroecological and profitable farming methods. The Workshops run from 9 am until 4 pm. Tools, handouts and snacks will be supplied. Bring your own lunch.
We currently have 3 autumn workshops scheduled for September 4, 8 and 19, and we are in the process of scheduling our Spring 2018 workshops.

We know that regenerating soil health holds some of the greatest potential for solving this century's issues of climate change, erosion, drought, malnutrition, clean water, poverty, economic self suficiency, food security, and more.
We are passionate about engaging farmers, policy makers, and all people who eat food on the importance of healthy soil and the means to regenerating that health while intensively producing bounteous, high quality food for us humans and more resilient and robust ecological systems.
Our Mission is to educate broadly while focusing our greatest efforts on sharing our experiences, challenges and successes with other farmers and farmer trainers.
We recognize that many backyard gardeners and homesteaders are also interested in learning more about agroecological intensive no-till farming, and for you we offer a variety of Hands-On Workshops, Consultations, and Private Farm Tours (see below). For our local community and CSA members, we also offer occasional Public Farm Tours.
We also support a variety of schools and non-profits who visit Singing Frogs Farm regularly for our in depth, scientific and inspiring Farm Tours. From hostng Non-Profit gatherings at our farm to hosting grade school through graduate school groups, we welcome the opportunity to share and inspire.
If you are a beginning or production farmer and money is tight, we understand and want to make things work for you. Please contact us and let's talk!

Connect with Singing Frogs Farm
“As beginning farmers, we visited over 50 farms in our search for a model. As soon as we saw Singing Frogs Farm a light bulb went off in our heads. Using Paul and Elizabeth’s farming model we have transformed our small urban farm into an ecologically and economically sustainable operation. We have witnessed first hand the positive effects of working with nature to grow more nutrient dense produce for our community. We are so fortunate to have met such amazing farmers, educators, activists and all around great people to inspire us as we 'grow' as beginning farmers.”
