Join Guidestone’s Colorado Land Link Program and Moonstone Ventures for a vision course dedicated to creating a plan for your farming future. We believe that one of the greatest tools a person can leverage in life is clear intention. This course is specifically designed to meet each participant where they are and nurture dreams into action plans.

What to Expect:

The course begins with a 3-day in-person retreat, facilitated by Jen Visitacion which will take place November 13th-15th near Salida, CO. During this time you will get to know each other, learn from local producers, and work together to articulate your unique pathways to success. Leaving this retreat, you will meet once monthly until March to share progress and challenges, and work collaboratively to create individualized action plans. Finally, the entire cohort will be invited to attend Guidestone’s AgriSummit conference on March 8th, 2024, where you will share your experience with fellow new and beginning agriculturalists.
