Ducharme hosts farmer mentoring program

Diane Ducharme, an Extension agriculture agent working in Henderson, Haywood and Buncombe counties, has A&T Extension’s Farmer-to-Farmer Mentoring Program in high gear this summer. Three farms near Asheville — Thatchmore, Full Sun and Flying Cloud — have been lined up to host a series of programs on Mondays, from 4 to 6 p.m., through Aug. 30.

Workshop topics will cover farm management from site selection to post-harvest handling. Well-experienced farmers as well as those completely new to the profession are welcome. Each workshop is a stand-alone, so participants can pick dates and topics that match personal schedules and interests. The registration fee is $5 per class.
