Support new farmers

It is important to provide new farmers with access to the knowledge and skills they need to be successful. Not all new farmers have the resources needed to gain this capacity. The Jefferson Center is creating a scholarship fund for new farmers. Abbey ran in the Running with the Bears Half Marathon on Aug. 20, 2016 to raise money for this scholarship fund. She finished first in her age division with a time of 1:52. It was such fun, she said.

Why scholarships for new farmers matter

Chloe shares her work and what she gained from the Jefferson Center Work Study Program. Please consider being part of the regenerative movement by supporting new farmers like Chloe.
