With the introduction of the North American Biodynamic Apprenticeship Program this year, the biodynamic community signaled its continuing commitment to nurturing new farmers. The Association plans to continue furthering this and other educational and training initiatives.
But farmers of all ages will need access to land, mentorship, capital and equipment, and community and marketplace support. How can we ensure that these motivated individuals will have the opportunity to succeed? We will be continuing this discussion, so please let us know your thoughts.
Email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to Editor, 25844 Butler Road, Junction City, OR 97448.
