Permalink Urban Edge Sustainable Farmers Accepting Applications for First Session

Urban Edge Sustainable Farmers (UESF) is accepting applications for its first session, which runs from February to November 2018. UESF is a full-time residential training program run by First Generation Farmers, a non-profit, women-led farm growing organic vegetables and cut flowers in Brentwood, California. The purpose of UESF is to provide aspiring specialty crop farmers with the foundational production skills, business knowledge, and confidence they need to establish dynamic and resilient farm enterprises on the urban edge--where ever-growing demand for sustainably grown, source-identified produce presents one of the most exciting economic opportunities in the agricultural sector today. With 550 acres of protected farmland available for incubation and long-term leasing, UESF envisions a cooperative future where dozens of small producers benefit from shared access to tools, labor, distribution, collective purchasing, product aggregation, and other cost efficiencies. The deadline to apply is December 1, 2017.
