Hello! Thanks for visiting this spreadsheet! Please add Boston-area resources to this list (though you will also find some resources here for outside the Boston area, too!) Please share widely and take care of each other. Don't promote exploitative, for-profit bullshit on this page, or organizations that are racist, transphobic, homophobic, etc. Don't post ableist or classist suggestions. Just be nice and look out for each other. AND STAY HOME IF YOU HAVE THE PRIVILEGE TO DO SO.

EMass C.R.A.F.T.: We are an independent Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training in eastern Massachusetts. Our purpose is to promote:

Training of farmers, farm workers and apprentices in the craft of small-scale sustainable agriculture with emphasis on food production. Through the collaboration of many farms, we provide a broader learning experience than can be received on one farm alone.

Exchange of ideas among farm people. Our goal is to increase the skill base in sustainable agriculture.

Community of farmers, farm workers, and others who are interested in local agriculture. We support peer-based education to help farmers connect with others who share similar goals.
