2017 NIFTI National Field School



Now in its sixth year, the NIFTI National Field School will take place November 8-10th in Pacific Grove, CA and support professional development and network building for beginning farmer training project staff from across the country. The Field School will feature workshops, facilitated resource review sessions, regional networking and goal-setting opportunities, and a farm tour to the Agriculture and Land Based Training Association.  Collaboration with ISED Solutions will allow for the inclusion of workshops led by and designed for refugee serving incubator projects.  A November 7th pre-conference for refugee serving projects will include sessions focused on resource sharing and network building. 


The goal of the Field School is to bring together leaders in the field of beginning farmer training to build skills, discuss perspectives and experience on how to best support the next generation of farmers in the US, and to reinforce and advance one another’s work. By strengthening the capacity of beginning farmer training programs across the country, this event aims to improve outcomes for new farmers nationwide.
