Farming Know-How

The following links provide a discussion of the legal and policy issues relevant to the particular category as well as access to a directory of related organizations and resources.

Some of these programs may overlap with those listed under other categories of New Farmer Issues. For instance, mentorships are a great way to learn agricultural skills from an experienced farmer but are also often used as a form of land transfer, and accordingly, mentorship programs might also appear in the "Land Access" category.

"The vision for FoodCorps is to recruit young adults for a yearlong term of public service in school food systems. Once stationed, FoodCorps members will build Farm to School supply chains, expand food system and nutrition education programs, and build and tend school food gardens.

The ultimate goal of the organization is to increase the health and prosperity of vulnerable children while investing in the next generation of farmers and public health leaders."
