Your purchase comes with a free trial membership in the SPIN farmers online learning hub, Backyard Riches. There you get access to replays of all our online member meetups and instant learning sessions, a private online support group where you can connect with those who are pioneering and tweaking SPIN-Farming around the world, and invitations to all our live online events. Brainstorm with those who have “been there”, or who are willing to help figure it out if they haven’t. Most do not come from farm families and don’t want to take on the traditional burdens of owning hundreds of acres of land, investing piles of money and making a big lifestyle change.
