St Lawrence College, the Loving Spoonful, the City of Kingston, and Corrections Canada have partnered on plans for a Farmer Training Program. The announcement was made at the unveiling of the Kingston Region Community Training Farm, where students will take part in a skills training session each week. Over six months, students will take part in online, in-class, and hands-on training to learn relevant skills, such as basic carpentry and small engine maintenance. The program aims to address a future labour shortage in the agricultural industry using a curriculum designed by SLC and Loving Spoonful. Students will also complete SLC’s Mental Health and Wellness for Farmers micro-credential. YGK News Note: Archived stories may contain dead links or be missing source links.
