Join us for a three-day exploration into the world of heritage grains. You'll learn techniques for growing and harvesting grains—and of course, delicious ways to eat them!

Locally grown and milled grains are the missing component in many regional food systems. To inspire a revival of localized grain systems across the Rocky Mountain West, RMSA has teamed up with the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs (UCCS) for a powerful educational course that aims to change this paradigm. Grain School trains and empowers people to once again grow, mill, and steward heritage grains in their communities.
