Mother Earth News: New Database Connects Students to Farming Mentors

Mother Earth News: New Database Connects Students to Farming Mentors. “Frustrated about turning away hundreds of applicants each year for internships at Polyface, Sheri [Salatin] founded the Eager Farmer database to improve the accessibility of on-farm experience for people around the world. She aims to help landowners find farm managers; hook up landless farmers with property they can lease or purchase; and connect young people with experienced farmers who can mentor them. By cultivating these connections, Eager Farmer hopes to preserve America’s agricultural landscapes for the next generation.”
