Growing Hope partners with local experts to provide free educational trainings for food entrepreneurs and farmers looking to start or scale up their food businesses. These trainings build skills and knowledge around concepts such as business planning, cottage food laws, labeling laws, marketing, food safety, and selling at a farmers market or for retail.

If you are interested in taking a workshop with us, all workshops for 2022 are listed on our calendar!  

Growing Hope partnered with 7 Cylinders Studio to produce a short film about our workshops and the Ypsilanti Farmers Markets. The film features Alex Ball, farmer of Old City Acres who shared his experience in this short video. Check it out!
