Waltham Fields Farm Manager Amanda Cather Chosen as Mentor for New NOFA Journeyperson Farmer Training Program!
In addition to bringing two new Assistant Growers into our own Farmer Training Program this year (welcome Sutton Kiplinger & Zannah Porter!), we are proud to have been chosen to participate in the newly established farm mentoring program through the MA Chapter of the Northeast Organic Farming Association.
This year-long program pairs new farmers with experienced farmers, providing educational opportunities for new farmers to gain more experience, skills and perspectives. Farm Manager Amanda Cather is already hard at work in her new role as mentor for Elizabeth Green at Apple Street Farm in Essex, MA. Here's to growing new organic farmers so that we can continue to nurture and reclaim our precious farmland to grow good food to feed ourselves!
