At FGF, everything we do is tied to our mission, everyone pitches in, and slowly but surely, it all comes together.
Every day we’re keeping the soil rich and chemical-free. We’re introducing young minds to wonders of worms and sprouting seeds. We’re making sure no one has to skip their veggies, and nothing goes to waste. Last but not least, we’re growing a fresh crop of farmers to keep up this good work, and keep passing the torch, for generations to come.
At First Generation Farmers, we believe that recruiting, training, inspiring, and mentoring the next generation of small and mid-size farmers is vital to the strength of our local communities, the health of our land, and the security of our food supply.
UESF is an immersive, full-time residential program designed to provide aspiring organic specialty crop farmers with the foundational production skills, business knowledge, and confidence they need to establish dynamic and resilient urban edge farm enterprises.
