Ascent Business Network is offering a 6-week Business Planning Course on Tuesday evenings, 5:30-8:30 from March 7th through April 11th.

This 6-week intensive will be facilitated by Lisa Redman, an entrepreneur-in-action who operates a not-for-profit teaching and learning farm, facilitates workshops with large groups of adults and youth, creates and markets value-added farm products like salves and kimchi, and apprentices as a butcher with Rose Mountain Butcher Shoppe. Lisa has worked as a grant writer and community advocate, co-founded an international non-profit in graduate school, and has mentored numerous student and community entrepreneurs with a focus on agricultural entrepreneurship. Lisa holds a BS in Community and Regional Planning and a MA in Geography, and earned a Permaculture Design Certificate while studying in California. Learn more about Lisa and her farm at
