Are you a middle or high school student interested in exploring a career in farming or agriculture? Would you like to attend the NOFA NY winter conference for free?

The Northeast Beginning Farmer Project will be providing scholarships for teachers and students to attend the 2012 NOFA NY winter conference to be held in Saratoga Springs, NY. Scholarships will be for Saturday, Jan. 21, 2012. Deadline for the application is Dec. 1.

Teachers are encouraged to apply as chaperones for student groups. Bring up to eight students for a chance to learn more about the latest projects in organic agriculture, direct marketing, beginning farming, and much more.

NOFA NY's popular winter conference draws more than 1,200 farmers, service providers, researchers and supporters to beautiful Saratoga Springs, NY for five days of classes, lectures, special events, delicious meals, networking opportunities, and fun.

Saturday's exclusive Lunchtime Networking Roundtable for Students & Teachers will offer teachers, students and beginning farmers a chance to talk about farm careers, the challenges and joys of farm life, and opportunities for student involvement in agriculture.

This project is supported by the Beginning Farmer and Rancher Development Program of the National Institute of Food and Agriculture, USDA, Grant # 2009-49400-05878 and a grant from New York Farm Viability Institute.
