Grow The Future: Youth Agriculture Opportunities This Summer

By June 20, 2024News

The future of agriculture starts with young farmers! From 2017 to 2022, the number of young farmers increased by 4%, and the ranks of beginning farmers grew by 10%.

This is great news since the average age of American farmers is 65, and we desperately need new talent to keep our local food system thriving.
If you know a young person interested in farming, share this list of camps, events, hands-on activities, and internship/mentorship opportunities. Now is the time to grow the future of agriculture!
