The Lingle workshop is 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday, April 5, at the James C. Hageman Sustainable Agriculture Research and Extension Center, 2753 State Highway 157, near Lingle.
The Cheyenne workshop is 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Friday, April 12, at the Laramie County extension office, 310 W. 19th St., in Cheyenne.
Lunch is provided for both workshops. Space is limited and RSVP is requested by Tuesday, April 2, for the Lingle workshop, and Tuesday, April 9, for the Cheyenne workshop.
“Community Supported Agriculture gets locally grown, seasonal food directly from an independent farmer into the hands of a group of supporters from the community,” said Cole Ehmke, extension specialist in personal finance and ag entrepreneurship. “The idea is that people purchase a share of the farm production, then, during the production season, they get a box of vegetables or other farm products every week.”
