To continue breaking the training, equipment and land barriers for new farmers, The Seed Farm needs support. The Seed Farm appreciates both financial and in-kind contributions.
Three areas that need your support…
New Farmer Training
Training new farmers in the diverse skills they need to succeed takes time. Seed Farm apprentices and stewards receive thousands of hours in training and mentoring in areas ranging from business and farm planning to pest and soil man-agement. Here’s how far your donation could go:
. $100 supports a day of training
. $300 supports a week of training
. $8,400 supports nine months of training
New Farm Business Infrastructure
. $250 keeps our greenhouse running for one month
. $10,000 buys a new produce cooler
Equipment Purchases and Maintenance
. $90 provides new hand hoes and transplanters for six apprentices
. $500 maintains our BCS tiller and other small equipment for one year
. $1,500 keeps our tractor running
. $30,000 provides an additional tractor
The Seed Farm needs your support. Please contact us if you would like to make an in-kind or financial contribution to new farmer training today!
