Department of Commerce to host five-part agritourism course
Farmers, business owners and entrepreneurs interested in agritourism are invited to attend a five-part agritourism course in February and March at Pratt Community College in Pratt, Kan.
The course, which comprises five consecutive Thursday sessions, will provide an overview of agritourism, including how rural entrepreneurs can start a new agritourism business or incorporate agritourism into an existing business. The course will be led by Jan Janzten, owner of Kansas Flint Hills Adventures, and other guest instructors. To help you learn what the course will involve and determine if it is right for you, two free course information sessions will be held on Jan. 6. The first will be held from 1 to 3 p.m. at the Raymond Frye Complex, 320 N. Jefferson, Wellington. The second will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at Community Bible Fellowship Church at 2853 NE Curry Lane, Medicine Lodge.
The full course sessions will take place from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Feb. 3, 10, 17, and 24 and March 3.
Registration for the full course is $75 per person for the five sessions and includes a light lunch each day, a course workbook and other course materials. The fee is only $50 for additional members of the same business or organization.

The course is sponsored by the Kansas Department of Commerce in partnership with Sunflower Resource Conservation & Development.
