Good Farming

Our Good Farming initiative supports sustainable agriculture and is designed to grow and connect our local food system by training new farmers, supporting existing farm businesses and educating consumers. This work includes:

Growing New Farmers Program

Aspiring farmers and food system leaders are provided foundational knowledge and training through a Certificate in Sustainable Agriculture and optional apprenticeship placement program.

Farm Support and Consulting

Farmers at all stages in their operation as well as agricultural professionals are provided with support, workshops, resources, and a regional listserv.

Eat Local Month

Eat Local Month is our annual effort (April) to focus attention on local growers, fishermen and restaurants and includes our annual Chef’s Potluck.
