The UVM Extension New Farmer Project is seeking funding to develop a 
tractor education curriculum and train-the-trainer project that will be 
broadly available to help provide basic tractor safety, basic use and 
maintenance, and decision-making education to Northeast small scale and 
diversified farms. We are proposing to offer training that uses a 
variety of in-person and online formats to prepare participants to 
deliver tractor education for beginning farmers and farm employees, 
interns and apprentices.

Please take a few moments to fill out this short survey to help us gauge 
priority topics and approaches for this type of training. Your input 
will help us design a project that will assist new farmers who are 
working to scale up their operations and established farmers who need 
appropriately trained employees.

Here is the link to the survey:

We apologize for cross postings, but wanted to try to reach out 
throughout our networks.
