Check out Groundswell Center’s website for many Spring, 2016 program listings. There are too many to list here, so please check them out.
From their website, “Groundswell’s Incubator Farm is the first of its kind in New York State, creating pathways to ownership for aspiring farmers from marginalized communities, including people of color, refugees and other new Americans, and veterans. We provide land, equipment, training and mentoring for three years, so that participants can launch their farm businesses with minimal investment and risk.”
The program offers a wide variety of training offerings taught by experienced small-scale farmers.
