ACORN's Grow A Farmer Mentorship Program!

Posted by Stephanie Rogers on May 19, 2015 in News

This program pairs new farmers with established organic farmers in the province for 1-3 hours a month of communications, to transfer lasting knowledge and skill, while helping to foster a community of support and inspiration for our future generations of organic producers!  

This program is a FREE service for ACORN members (see here for more information about the benefits of ACORN membership). 

For more information about the Mentorship Program, please see here. Previous participants are welcome to apply again, though first-time applicants have priority placement. 

This is also a friendly reminder that there are numerous resources available to support you on the Grow A Farmer website (here) including information about our 122-page Guide for Beginning Farmers. Otherwise, I also encourage you take a good look through the ACORN website (, and most notably through ACORN's Organic Resource Library - here
