Leadership and Community

Farm work is rewarding, challenging, and ever evolving–especially in the face of climate change where unpredictable weather patterns can make last year’s planting calendar feel precarious. Between a changing climate, and increasing competition and market capture from industrialized farms, there is an ongoing need to develop a leader-full organic farming community that can advocate for system change from the grassroots to the treetops.

When it comes to the solutions needed to grow thriving organic farm businesses and strengthen organic food and farming systems, no one knows the answers better than the farmers and farmer-workers who are providing care and nourishment for those ecosystems every day.
