Young Agrarians is building tools!

U-MAP – An interactive Resource Map focused on centralizing information for new and existing farmers in the certified or uncertified organic sector. Add your resource to the map or find a resource. If you are mapping resources in your area, please get in touch!

BUSINESS MENTORSHIP NETWORK – We are offering a business mentorship network this Winter to pair up new farmers with 40 hours of mentorship with established farm business operators to develop business mentorship skills. Deadline for applicants is Wednesday, November 26th, 2014.

LAND ACCESS TOOLS – We have developed a Land Access Guide as a start-up primer for new farmers wanting to get onto land. We workshopping this guide during a Land Linking Event Series November 2013 in Armstrong, Creston and Cowichan. We will be holding more Land Linking Workshops Fall/Winter 2014/15. We receive regular emails from land owners looking for farmers to farm their land. Periodically we post a Land Blog advertising that info. Land Owners are also posting potential land op’s on the UMAP.

JOBS – Please visit the JOBS blog to see what new opportunities are in circulation! Send us your great job op to add to the blog.
