At EFI, we seek to teach sustainable farming practices to self-identified beginner farmers.  With your help, we are creating opportunities for these entrepreneurs to come learn new techniques, share ideas, and establish farming methods that are environmentally, socially, and economically viable.  We envision a future where farms power themselves, their community and the world from the energy of the sun.

With your generous support we can:

  • Provide workshops, programs, and learning opportunities to self-identified beginner farmers.
  • Facilitate applied research on climate smart farming techniques.
  • Support and promote farming as a viable profession, ensuring a bright future for local food
