NIFTI Fact Sheet: Global Growers Intake Process

  • Digital Download

Global Growers is a garden and incubator program located outside of Atlanta, Georgia, which offers a range of opportunities to New American farmers. While new farmers often approach opportunities to access land with the idea that the biggest available site is the best site, this isn't always the case. A number of factors, outlined in this fact sheet, can help determine which site is the most appropriate for a new farmer. Global Growers' intake process is intended to match farmers with the opportunity most suited to their abilities and needs, and set the tone for participation in the program.
