Permalink Organic Farming Program Awarded Beginning Farmer Grant

Rodale Institute and Delaware Valley University have been awarded a $498,706, three-year Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program grant in support of their joint Organic Farming Program. The 36-credit, one-year Organic Farming Program was established in 2012 and includes two semesters at the University and one semester at Rodale Institute. Students graduate with the knowledge and experience necessary to start a small-scale organic farm or work for an organic operation. The program offers assistance with job placement and developing business plans for farms so that graduates can easily move into organic agriculture careers. The Organic Farming Program is open to all students, but has been particularly popular with military veterans looking to transition into civilian careers.
