Crosshatch Field Schools are hands-on, on-farm learning days—going beyond the basics to support intermediate learners, but friendly enough for homestead-scale growers. Field Schools rely on experienced instructors and small group sizes, with both classroom time and field work for an in-depth education. Included is a local food lunch and a post-workshop social hour to continue the discussion in an informal way.
Field School Summer is hosted by Bear Creek Organic Farm and Spirit of Walloon Market Garden, and features these three tracks:
Hoophouse Tomatoes and Cucumbers with Brian Bates of Bear Creek Organic Farm
Advanced Beekeeping with Ana Heck, Pollination research technologist at Michigan State University
Cut Flowers with Rachel Cross of Spirit of Walloon Market Garden
