From the Beginning Farmer Project:
The Beginning Farmer Project is offering scholarships for teachers and students to attend the NOFA NY Winter Conference in January of 2012. The conference is a lot of fun, and we will be hosting a teacher/student/farmer networking lunch that Saturday so everyone will have a chance to mingle, eat great food, and meet other young folks and educators who are passionate about farming.
