NOFA JOURNEYFARMER PROGRAM SEEKS APPLICATIONS The Northeast Organic Farming Association of Vermont has received funding from Vermont's Agriculture Innovation Center to pilot a Journeyfarmer Program in 2011. The program will connect aspiring organic farmers with some experience (farm apprentices, farm workers, or next-generation of an existing farm) to established farmers, in order to help aspiring farmers be successful.

Six mentee participants will receive support including: 30 hours of farmer-to-farmer mentoring, technical assistance and business planning, free enrollment in either UVM Extension's Growing Places or Building a Sustainable Business courses, free admission to NOFA-VT's Winter Conference and Summer Workshop Series, and a monetary educational stipend.

The selection process begins in January. This program is open to dairy, livestock, fruit, and vegetable farmers. If interested in participating or if you are an experienced farmer who wants to mentor new farmers, please contact: Wendy Sue Harper at 802-434-4122 or wendysue@nofavt.org.
