2020 Applied Shellfish Farming Course

It is that time of the year again, when Roger Williams University’s Center for Economic and Environmental Development will be offering our Applied Shellfish Farming course for business start-ups in the region (and beyond). This non-credit course consists of 15 evening lectures (6:30 to 9:00 PM) over the next four months (starting on 21 January) that cover the range of information you may need to help with starting or improving your farm.

The course can be attended in person at the RWU campus in Bristol, RI or on-line through a weekly live webinar-type format available on the Internet. Each class will also be recorded for later viewing, if needed.

The course will be taught by Dale Leavitt, Matt Griffin and Rob Hudson, with a few outside speakers to cover specialized topics.

If you plan on attending the course in person, or if you plan on taking the course via the Internet, please drop a note to “appliedshellfishfarming@gmail.com” and we will get back in touch with you with more details on how to sign up for and tune in to the course.

Happy New Year,

The Applied Shellfish Farming Team
