Southeast Alaska Farmer Exchange

The Southeast Alaska Watershed Coalition is offering scholarships for Southeast based farmers to attend an organic farming convention in Wisconsin. Attending the annual Midwest Organic & Sustainable Education Service (MOSES) Conference will give farmers the opportunity to further their education and learn from successful and innovative farmers and experts who have tools to overcome similar challenges of a short growing season and growing in northern climates.

Farmers will be offered scholarships to cover the cost of travel to the Conference, lodging (at an Airbnb), transportation, conference registration, and per diem.
