This section of our website is devoted to nurturing connections among beginning farmers, and more generally between new farmers and more experienced producers, agricultural service providers, land owners, funders, and others.

Our sign-up form lets you tell us what topics you're interested in so that we can be sure that you know about learning opportunities and resources related to those topics without cluttering your inbox. Our emails will notify you about workshops, webinars, farm tours, learning circles and other ways you can connect with people who share your interests. You don't have to be a new farmer to sign up. We welcome service providers and established farmers to join as well.
