The Alaskan Growers School
The Alaskan Growers School is a distance-delivered course open to Alaskans all over the state. After completing the course, students will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to grow enough food for themselves and 10 other families! They will also gain a variety of other skills such as raising bees, livestock, chickens, starting a business, marketing wild teas and other forest products, and much more!
The Beginning and Advanced Alaskan Growers School consists of 22 lessons. Classes use distance delivery including Blackboard, Elluminate Live, and Teleconference. Here is an example of a course lesson. If you have questions, please contact us.
