Permalink MOFGA Receives Grant for Maine Farm Resilience Program

Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association (MOFGA) announced that it has received a $599,913 award through the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program administered by USDA-NIFA. The funding will help support training of 116 farmers over the next three years through MOFGA's existing Journeyperson Training Program and its new Maine Farm Resilience Program. MOFGA's Journeyperson Training Program provides new and aspiring farmers with hands-on trainings, individualized support from program staff and peer liaisons, technical assistance, and peer network facilitation. The new Maine Farm Resilience Program is designed for advanced-beginner farmers with five to nine years of experience, and will ensure that these new farmers have support and training as they move beyond the start-up phase.
