Regenerative Farming Fellowship, applications due October 15
September 26, 2020
Stone Barns Center launched the Fellowship in 2019 with the goal of supporting farmers in their transition to regenerative agricultural practices. The program’s peer cohort model fosters participants’ development as both practitioners and ambassadors of regenerative farming. This year’s cohort is geared toward farmers who seek a deeper understanding of Midwest and Northeast regional diverse grain models; the two cohorts will learn together, in hopes of facilitating a transition to regenerative practices by farmers across both the Midwest and Northeast.
The Fellowship will bring together growers, processors, local and federal policy experts, and market specialists to help guide participants toward success. Fellows will enjoy content including:
- Network connections and access to new partnerships
- Trainings on federal and state policy
- Peer-to-peer exchange
- A needs assessment and one-on-one technical mentorship
Up to 10 Fellows will be selected for the 2020 cohort, and each will receive a $3,000 stipend. The application deadline is October 15, and the cohort of selected Fellows will be announced on November 13. The program will begin with Stone Barns Center’s virtual Young Farmers and Cooks Conference December 8-10. Learn more here.
The application shouldn’t take more than 15 minutes to complete, so if you are a farmer (or know a farmer) who would be a good fit for or benefit from the Fellowship, please get in your application.
