“Our focus is long term farm-based education that is impactful. Our motive is not just to provide them with a nice day on the farm, it’s to educate.” 

- Barbara Sarbin, Something Good in the World. Cortlandt Manor, NY


In 2019, the FBEN membership grew to 3,840 members.  The majority of our members come from the United States, but over the past ten years individuals from the international community have joined as well, representing the following countries: Argentina, Australia, Bolivia, Canada, China, Costa Rica, Denmark, Ecuador, Finland, Germany, Greece, Iceland, India, Indonesia, Israel, Italy, Jordan, Kenya, New Zealand, Peru, Poland, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Slovakia, Taiwan. R.O.C., Tasmania, Thailand, The Netherlands, and the United Kingdom.


Members are teachers and teaching assistants, farmers, ecologists, research assistants, FoodCorps and AmeriCorps services members, nutritionists, doctors, garden coordinators, and of course urban, suburban, and rural farmers! In 2015, 49% of members were in rural areas; 68% operated at a nonprofit, and over one third had an operating budget under 50,000 annually.
