START-UP FARM INCUBATOR / MENTORSHIP

Wanted: Farmers
Organization: Sandown Centre for Regenerative Agriculture | Fostering Farmers
Location: North Saanich, near Victoria & Sidney, Vancouver Island BC

We are looking for a food producer to join our Farmpreneur program! This is a supported incubator plot model that fosters a new generation of regenerative growers who are in the early-mid stages of their farming careers.

The program includes shared amenities, shared market channels, the support of a collegial peer group, and ongoing mentorship from industry professionals in the diverse skills required to thrive in today’s agricultural sector. A shared greenhouse, irrigation, tools, and processing areas are critical pieces of infrastructure to get started in the regenerative agricultural journey. We are asking for $1700 inclusive of a 1/2 acre plot, shared amenities, and mentorship for the first year. There is also an option for a smaller lease on a smaller parcel of land. For more information on The Sandown Centre for Regenerative Agriculture and our Farmpreneur program, see our website at sandowncentre.com

Apply today by sending an email to sandowncentre@gmail.com including the following information: Who you are, what you grow, and why. Your product(s) and intended market(s). How much time you plan to commit to your farm enterprise (full-time or part-time), and how you plan to support yourself through the start-up phase.
