About Chesapeake CRAFT

Join our mailing list!

Welcome to Chesapeake CRAFT! Modeled after other CRAFT programs around the country, the Chesapeake Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training is an exciting way to learn about different approaches to farming during the season while visting farms and connecting with new farming peers.

Founded in 2010 by a few local farmers, Chesapeake CRAFT brings together the community of new and aspiring farmers in Northern Virginia and Maryland for farm tours and potlucks throughout the growing season. These simple gatherings are fun, informative, and build networking amongst the farming community.

How it works:

Chesapeake CRAFT events will take place on twelve Mondays throughout the growing season, April- October. CRAFT  farm tours commence at 3:30pm, followed by a potluck dinner.

Chesapeake CRAFT fee: The fee for a farm’s participation in Chesapeake CRAFT is $100.00 which includes attendance of your farm staff to any CRAFT event during the season. It is understood that most farm crews cannot attend every event, due to schedule conflicts etc. The $100.00 goes towards compensating special presenters at CRAFT events, and will also offset the costs of the Summer Solstice conference. Individuals can sign up for the CRAFT program for $40 for the season. Single event attendance is $10.

How to sign up:

Accokeek Foundation will handle money for the Chesapeake CRAFT program, and serve as an organizational sponsor for the program. Please make checks payable to Accokeek Foundation and either bring to the tour event or send to:
