About This Organizer

First Generation Farmers is a non-profit community farm located in Brentwood, California. We work toward our mission of facilitating food access along with our new and beginning farmers through our core sustainable agriculture programming, implementation, and education.
 
First Generations Farmers mission is to facilitate food access from and for the local community while conserving natural resources, providing public education, access to open space and promoting beginning farmers, ranchers, and agripreneurs.
 
Programming at FGF began so people could participate in their food system and learn how to start their own farm if they chose to do so.  We are losing too many farmers and think this is a great outlet for people of all ages to get connected not just to dirt and food but also to each other, the environment, society, agricultural heritage, learning and teaching.
