We are excited to partner for the 3rd year in a row with Soul Fire Farm on the Braiding Seeds Fellowship project & provide beginning BIPOC farmers with resources, professional development, and mentors.
The fellowship is an 18-month long program open to beginning BIPOC farmers from the northeast and southeast of the US. The program provides 10 selected cohort members with $50,000 stipends, 1:1 mentorship and coaching, professional development, business acumen, and community-building opportunities.
