This program ran from 2016 - 2018 and helped connect experienced seed growers with farmers who want to increase the scale, quality, and diversity of seed they are saving on-farm. Each season farmer pairs completed 15–30 hours of mentorship as part of a self-directed program to help mentees reach their seed growing goals.
This program is not currently accepting applications. ACORN's sincere thanks go to each mentor and mentee who have participated to date. We stand in great admiration of your unique commitment to growing high quality seed, and to supporting the seed community. Thank you!
