Lee, Moore & Richmond Counties

Green Fields Sandhills wants to help both new farmers and existing ones who are interested in learning more about organic or sustainable farming practices. The Carolina Farm Stewardship Association's Sustainable Ag Conference is one of the preeminent conferences of its kind in the country. With support from DaVita Healthcare, GFS is pleased to be able to offer TWO scholarships to the SAC this year. One scholarship covers the banquet Friday night, Saturday and Sunday workshops, Saturday reception, and hotel for two nights (a $525 value!). The second scholarship covers Saturday workshops and local food reception. Both provide a year's membership to CFSA. The application is simple! Deadline is September 20, 2019. One application per farm family, from one of the six Sandhills Counties (Lee, Moore, Harnett, Hoke, Richmond, Scotland). Questions? email greensfieldssandhills@gmail.com. The application is on-line here (it is also available as a pdf as a hard copy. Email GFS to request a pdf version).
