The USA North Central Region-Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (NCR-SARE) has launched a call for applications for its Youth Educator Sustainable Agriculture Grants 2021.
NCR-SARE recognizes that youth programs are a way to introduce new and exciting farming and ranching options to youth, parents, and community members.
The Youth Educator program provides opportunities for youth to learn about Sustainable Agriculture (farming and ranching that is ecologically sound, profitable, and socially responsible).
