Regenerative Farming Fellowship Invites Applications
The Stone Barns Regenerative Farming Fellowship (RFF) provides medium-scale farmers seeking to transition to regenerative farming practices with education, a supportive peer network, and the inspiration, leadership and advocacy skills they need to bring about structural change. The Fellowship, which is being piloted in 2019, is developed and programmed by the Stone Barns Center for Food and Agriculture in partnership with the National Young Farmers Coalition and Arizona State University, supported by the General Mills Foundation. The Regenerative Farming Fellowship begins at the annual Stone Barns Young Farmers Conference in Pocantico Hills, New York, on December 3-6, 2019. Fellows will continue their stay at Stone Barns through December 9, 2019, for further in-depth programming featuring experts in the fields of sustainable food and farming. From Stone Barns Center, the cohort will travel to Washington, D.C., for a three-day intensive leadership and advocacy training. Finally, the cohort will gather for three days at the General Mills headquarters in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in early April. Up to eight applicants will be selected for the 2019 Regenerative Farming Fellowship cohort. Applications are due by August 7, 2019.
