Bursary Fund Helps Young Farmers Grow their Skills

Do you know a new, young, or aspiring farmer who’s eager to expand their knowledge and connect with other growers in the province? Thinking about what to do to thank your interns or employees for a great season? The EFAO Conference Bursary fund is set up for just this purpose – to allow individuals who may not be able to pay their own way to participate in the conference and build relationships with Ontario’s ecological farming community!

A donation of $200 covers a full conference pass for a bursary applicant, and any donation over $25 is tax-receipted. Individuals with less than 5 years’ farming experience can apply for bursary funding, and your generosity will be recognized in the conference program and on our website.
