Frontline Farming’s 2-week Farm Immersion program focuses on beginning skills to support aspiring farmers and gardeners who seek to build and manage a sustainable farm. This program will go over the basics of applied farm skills including soil management, crop management and planning, seeding, planting, and pest and weed management. To build community within the program participants, this program will also include basic training in nonviolent communication, the history of BIPOC relationships to land, and ceremony making. This program is specifically designed to provide technical knowledge required for daily production and management in the Front Range area and will take place on a two acre functioning production farm. This program will include elements that highlight the specific connections between BIPOC and the land and examine some of the particular barriers they/we face. The work of healing and land based stewardship is a commitment each member must individually make for themselves and is a lifelong journey. Our hope is that participation in this program will provide basic skills in regenerative farming as people build on their own connections and commitments to community and personal food sovereignty.

Frontline Farming’s Beginning Farmer Work Experience is a path for Black, Indigenous and other People of Color (BIPOC) who want hands-on experience working on a production farm and who seek to build on fundamental skills in regenerative agriculture.  Individuals with beginning and intermediate experience in farming will join our crew as a paid staff, and will learn new skills on-the-job and gain first hand, real world experience. This program is designed for beginning farmers interested in gaining a full seasonal experience on a production farm. Beginning farmers in the work experience will work with farm crew in a regular schedule and will be provided a weekly full, paid day of education during the season while learning greater skills through field demonstrations and through contributing to daily operations on the farm. This is a work experience which requires discipline and commitment to farming as a vocation and way of life. We provide a culturally supportive and immersive environment for community, education and advocacy and ask that those who participate show up with a commitment to this reciprocity and being a part of the larger frontline mission.

Farmer Knowledge Class Series

Since FrontLine Farming began in 2018, we have offered one-off farm clases throughout the growing season to help community members achieve liberation through  increasing their farm and garden knowledge on different topics. These clase content is designed for students aged 18 or older. The class topics are chosen based on yearly community surveys and are directed by the knowledge we hold as farmers and the desire from the community to gain certain types of knowledge and skills.
