Funding Opportunities for New and Aspiring Farmers

Tuesday March 21, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Free Register

Join Aliyah Fraser of Lucky Bug Farm to talk about how new and aspiring farmers can access different types of funding to help seed their farming dreams! Do you have ideas for funding opportunities (non-repayable grants or low-interest loans) to share with fellow farmers? Looking for help figuring out how to find the capital to buy equipment, pay the deposit on your lease, or purchase seeds in your first season? Join this meet-up to learn and share ideas for farm start-up funding.

During her first few years of farming, Aliyah has had some success accessing various funding opportunities that might be a fit for you, too. She’ll share some of her experiences, and then we’ll open the floor for participants to share funding opportunities they are aware of, tips & tricks for applying, and success stories from previous seasons.

EFAO staff will take notes during the session and share a list of the funding opportunities discussed with attendees afterward.
