The Land Stewardship Project recently launched a Journeyperson Course as a way to fill the continuing education gap between farm start-up and farm establishment. The goal is to provide resources and opportunities for beginning farmers who have completed an initial farm-planning course and have gained some experience on their own, but feel a need to further develop the skills they need to farm independently and successfully. The program includes farmer mentors, financial advisers, matching with a peer farmer, planning retreats, access to LSP resources, and an opportunity for matched savings. Prospective journeypersons should be Farm Beginnings graduates or Farm Beginnings students. The first application deadline is November 12. Up to 20 farms will be accepted into the program each calendar year.
