Invest in local farmers and sustain the movement for an equitable food system with a gift to Groundswell. 

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 SUPPORT beginning Farmers

Our Farm Business Courses and One-to-One Guidance help new farmers set goals, find markets and plan for profit.

We Collaborate for Justice

Through our Farming for Justice Group, and events, we partner with organizations led by people of color to address injustices in the food system.

We promote sustainable farming

Our hands-on Workshops highlight techniques that improve soil health, conserve water and promote land regeneration.

We cultivate successful farmers

Our multi-level Programs help farmers increase production yields, explore new enterprises or connect with a mentor.

Join the movement and get involved!


Farming for Justice Webinars explore topics related to food sovereignty, racial equity, reparations, and other topics related to land and justice.
