In addition to Farm Aid’s work throughout the year to build a thriving family farm-centered system of agriculture, Farm Aid funds family farm and rural service organizations through an annual grant program. We thank Farm Aid for their continued support of Land For Good. We are proud to be one of many 2022 grant recipients committed to keeping family farmers on the land.
Farm Aid made grants totaling $1,187,100 in 2022, the majority of which were made during the month of December to 88 family farm, rural service and urban agriculture organizations (see complete list) that support family farmers, work to achieve racial equity and social justice, prioritize farmer-led solutions to climate change, and build power for systemic change in our farm and food system.
Farm Aid awarded a $10,000 grant to Land For Good to provide individualized land access and farm transfer advising, coaching and referral services to beginning, established, and transitioning farmers and farm families in New England in 2023.
Thanks to the continued generosity of supporters from across the country, today Farm Aid is able to send critical funds to hardworking organizations who share Farm Aid’s mission,” said Farm Aid President Willie Nelson. “The real power of Farm Aid’s grants is in the network of changemakers they knit together, in cities and rural areas across this country, who are working to build an equitable and sustainable farm and food system for us all.”
We also recognize our partners in New England and beyond who were grant recipients: Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture, Northeast Sustainable Agriculture Working Group, The Carrot Project, Connecticut Farmland Trut, Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, New Entry Sustainable Farming Project, National Sustainable Agriculture Coalition, National Young Farmers Coalition, Northeast Organic Farming Association (with chapters in CT, MA, NH, NJ, NY, RI, VT), and Rural Vermont.
Thank you for helping keep farmers on the land in New England and beyond!
