Marketing, Financials and Financing your Farm Project

  • Bridgeport Art Center 1200 W 35th St Chicago (map)

Hosted by Urban Growers Collective

We will begin the day discussing financial planning, budgets and spreadsheets, grant writing and financing your project, and small group budget development. Next, we will create a comprehensive operating budget, profit and loss format and begin to develop a financing or grant writing for the business plan. UGC will provide bookkeeping and accounting basics presentation and provide templates for developing the budget. This information will provide a springboard to begin strategizing how products and services will be sold to generate revenue for the enterprise. Planning value-added products, workshops, and sales to restaurants, Community Supported Agriculture, and farmers’ markets will all be explored through small group discussion and a questions and answers session.
