We SUPPORT beginning Farmers
Our Farm Business Courses and One-to-One Guidance help new farmers set goals, find markets and plan for profit.
We create affordable Land Access
Our Incubator Farm Program makes it easier to start farming by supplying equipment, training, resources and land just 3-miles from Ithaca.
We COLLABORATE for Justice & Equity
Through our Farming for Justice Discussion Group, and community events, we partner with organizations led by people of color to address injustices in the food system.
We FOSTER sustainable farming
Our hands-on Workshops highlight techniques that improve soil health, conserve water and promote land regeneration.
WELCOME TO GROUNDSWELL CENTER FOR LOCAL FOOD & FARMING
