Join us for one to three-day explorations 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 created 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.


The innovative curriculum covers a range of topics including the history of land-race grains, crop breeding, nutritional and health issues, baking and fermentation, and small-scale production techniques. Facilitated by RMSA's Bill McDorman and Lee-Ann Hill, the course includes special guests and experts in local grain farming, milling, and baking.
