GLA’s Scholarship for Future Farmers
The average age of a farmer in the Green Lake watershed is 64 years, which means significant generational shifts on the horizon. We need to arm our young future farmers with the skills to be innovative land and lake stewards. This requires investments now to make a lasting difference in land management that benefits Green Lake’s downstream water quality.
That’s why we’ve created a scholarship fund for the next generation of farmers in our watershed. We are sending teams of future farmers and their actively farming parents to workshops, where they can meet conservation agronomists and learn from the experts.
The application is open to current high school or college students, or students who have graduated high school within the last two years.
Healthy soil means healthy water. By investing in future farmers, it is our hope to help educate the next generation of agricultural stewards who will protect Green Lake through environmentally and economically smart land practices. Thank you for your interest in receiving a Future Farmer Scholarship from the Green Lake Association (GLA)!
