Support Farmers and Gardeners!
Help farmers and gardeners gain access to organic education!
Organic gardeners and farmers are transforming our food system – one fork at a time.
Organic Growers School is training and educating these gardeners and farmers – one workshop, farm tour, roundtable, and class at a time.
We need your help to educate more farmers and gardeners.
In 2013, OGS will:
- Expand options for commercial farmers at our Spring Conference
- Add content developed by and for low-income urban gardeners, and
- Make scholarships available to more low-income gardeners and farmers than ever before.
With your support:
- The Spring Conference will feature 8-16 workshops for commercial farmers (increasing from the usual four). These new classes will reach 300-600 growers at the 2013 Conference alone.
- OGS will partner with urban gardeners in public housing and other low-income neighborhoods to develop gardening classes focused on the unique challenges and opportunities of urban gardening.
- OGS’s CRAFT Farmer Education Program will offer five winter farmer roundtables, providing educational opportunities and peer support as farmers plan for the upcoming growing season.

Organic Growers School needs to raise $3,000 by December 15 to pay for scholarships, new workshops and classes, and year-round farmer education.
