Join the Groundswell!

Join the Finger Lakes CRAFT for the 2014 season!


The Finger Lakes CRAFT (Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training) is a community of established and aspiring farmers. This community meets monthly throughout the growing season at each of six CRAFT Mentor Farms to learn about that farm operation, ask lots of questions, share knowledge and network with each other. We also have several potlucks through the season where you can get to know other beginning and established farmers. CRAFT Potlucks are free and are open to family members and guests who want to learn more about CRAFT.
