Virtual Grange launches to help beginning farmers nationwide
The Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture’s Growing Farmers Initiative launched an online hub for beginning farmers earlier this month. The Growing Farmers Initiative, which equips new farmers with knowledge and hands-on experiences needed to sustain a healthful food system, now provides resources and tools for farmers nationwide through an online community called Virtual Grange.
Beginning farmers in both rural and urban settings across the country can access the online platform to connect and collaborate with fellow farmers via discussion forums that address agricultural problems and solutions, watch video tutorials and stay up to date on the latest agricultural news. Information about upcoming conferences and workshops as well as resources for apprenticeship opportunities available on the West and East coasts will also be listed.
