Scholarship Application

Join farmers, farm-based educators and service providers in a two-day exploration of open farms in Vermont and the Northeast.  Workshops will discuss the opportunities and challenges that visitors bring to farms, and will share tools for offering memorable, authentic on-farm experiences to your guests. Learn how to use your farm as a classroom, expand opportunities for direct sales, and discover the impact of farm-based education and agritourism on your farm, family, community and beyond.

Hands-on full day workshops and field trips will be offered on October 22. October 23 will follow a "conference" format with workshops, networking, lunch and more.  Attendees can register to attend one or both days.  

Registration will close October 17 at 7:30 am. Contact Vera Simon-Nobes:; (802) 985 0382 with questions.
