Grow Louisiana

Grow LA logopngpngGrow Louisiana is a partnership of academic, cooperative extension, and non-profit personnel that trains new and beginning sustainable horticulture farmers with less than 10 years of experience on small to mid-size farms in Louisiana. State patterns documented the need for a new and beginning farmer training program due to emerging local food system interest across the state, an increase in the number of new and beginning farmers, an increase in urban farming activities, and synergies with local organizations focused on food system development.

The program seeks to assist farmers interested in sustainable agricultural practices and local food systems via a mixed methods approach of classroom sessions, hands-on trainings, field trips, farm visits, and farmer networking.
