NATIONAL YOUNG FARMERS COALITION

ROOT AND BLOOM FELLOWSHIP

about the program

The Root and Bloom Fellowship is an advocacy and power-building educational opportunity for 35-40 farmers across the country. Organized into two major phases, ROOT and BLOOM, fellows will explore how many of the challenges young and BIPOC farmers face nationwide are deeply woven and rooted in federal agriculture policy. Progressing through the fellowship, fellows will explore the ways those same policies and power dynamics play out in their communities and regions, blooming into new opportunities, positions of power, local relationships, and projects, to make change at home.

Over 9 months, from September 2024 to June 2025, Root and Bloom fellows will meet (virtually) for bimonthly sessions that will foster relationships amongst this geographically diverse cohort, allow space to dive deep into topics like organizing, advocacy, power analysis (and so much more!), and ultimately culminate in fellows pursuing local and regional leadership positions. Fellows will receive stipends for their time spent on program activities, and we estimate this fellowship to be a 4-6 hour per month time commitment. The stipend is split into three payments across the 9 month fellowship, totaling approximately $2,000 over the full program length. The first stipend will be distributed in December 2024 and is $720. In 2025, we’ll have two similar amount payments, one in April and one in June, at the end of the fellowship. The total amount will be roughly $2000 per fellow for the 9 month program.

NOTE: All participants will need to be comfortable with programming (speaking, reading, and writing) happening in English.
