About this Event
The New Entry Sustainable Farming Project’s (New Entry) mission is to foster resilience in local, regional and national food systems by training a new generation of farmers to produce food that is nutritious, culturally connected and accessible to all individuals. In doing this work, they develop economic opportunities for new farmers, generate new knowledge, and facilitate connections to the land to build thriving communities.
New Entry, an initiative of Tufts University’s Friedman School of Nutrition Science and Policy, works locally, regionally, and across the country to strengthen local food systems by supporting new farmers. Guest presenter, Kevin Cody, is the Farmer Training Program Manager at New Entry where he develops pathways to generate and sustain new and beginning farmers. With a background in sustainable food systems education, his role at New Entry includes overseeing grants, developing curriculum, building strategic regional partnerships, and providing direct technical assistance to participants and instruction in courses on food systems, crop production and business planning.
