Second course

The second course, Marketing and Profits: Making Money Selling What You Grow, is six weeks long and begins March 18.

Both courses are designed to stand alone, or build on each other by being taken back-to-back.

They will be taught by educators from Cornell Cooperative Extension, and both courses will incorporate real-time interaction with webinars.
