Our Dream Team
Heart of the Project
Our peer Connectors, mostly farmers, are rooted in the communities they serve and have well-developed networks connecting them to people with expertise in farm finance, soil health, and conservation. Connectors are well versed in USDA programming, and are actively building relationships with local county and state NRCS and FSA staff. When working with individual farmers, connectors take time to get to know each person’s situation; help them identify which programs are right for them; and shepherd them through the process of meeting eligibility requirements and signing up or applying for programs, including setting up record keeping systems. We are building a gallery of photos and stories from all of the amazing Connectors on the Dream Team. Please check back in a few weeks!
