Twilight Grower Series: Farmer to Farmer Skillshares


SEMAP’s Twilight Grower Series offers farmers and food producers the chance to connect with and learn from one another. This farmer-to-farmer educational workshop series takes place on farms across the region, allowing hands-on learning and networking opportunities. While this series is open to everyone, it is particularly geared towards commercial growers. Unless otherwise noted, all our Twilight events are FREE.

Previous topics for the Twilight Grower Series have included pest management, alpaca basics, high tunnel winter growing, soil health, and more! View highlights from the 2022 series here.


Our official 2023 Twilight Grower Series starts this spring! Check out the first few events below, and be sure to look at our events calendar for other great programs! Beginning this year, childcare will be available for free at all SEMAP Twilight Events!
