Groundswell Center for Local Food and Farming

Groundswell Center for Local Food and Farming aims to foster a more sustainable, just food system by supporting new farmers, ensuring affordable access to land, and providing hands-on education in farming, sustainable land-use practices, and food justice.  To ensure all community members can participate in its educational programming, Groundswell Center relies on a sliding scale fee structure and offers participants language interpretation and transportation services when needed.  As start-up costs often pose a significant obstacle to new farmers, in 2012 the nonprofit launched an Incubator Farm program that provides new growers with affordable land, resources, one-on-one guidance, and training to develop production techniques and business skills for up to four years.
