Northeast Climate Adaptation Fellowship Program

Northeast Climate Adaptation Fellowship program is now taking applications through Oct. 1, 2020. This program is open to commercial farmers in the Northeast U.S. who grow vegetables and/or small fruit and to agricultural advisors who work with vegetable/small fruit farms in this region. The one-year program provides a peer-to-peer curriculum for farmers and advisors, and its framework is designed to integrate climate science with a land manager’s knowledge. Participants in the vegetable and fruit program will enhance their knowledge of climate impacts to vegetable and fruit farms in the Northeast, completing the program in pairs (farmers and advisors) to develop personalized farm adaptation plans and outreach materials to share with peers. An informational webinar recorded on July 14, 2020, is available here.
