Farmer Circles are peer learning communities for farmers interested in discussing a certain topic in an informal, supportive environment. Each circle meets for at least 12 hours over the course of about one year and is facilitated by another farmer with interest in the subject. There are no teachers or students in the circles, just a community of farmers coming together to learn from each other!
SNEFCC Farmer Circles bring together farmers of color & aspiring farmers of color who come to share experiences and support each other as we pursue careers in farming. There may not be a set agenda and discussion is driven by participants and facilitated by another farmer in the group. Group meetings can take place online or in person with a schedule set by the participants.
Farmers of Color are invited to sign up for a Farmer Circe in CT, MA, RI, and NH. Participants will receive a stipend at the end of the year (approx $15/hr of participation).
