MentorLINK is an exciting internship program being established to link up new farmer interns with professionals who can provide technical farming and business planning assistance.

Immigrants face many obstacles when attempting to become farmers, but a new initiative by the University of Guelph’s Centre for Land and Water Stewardship helps support and ease new farmers into successful farming relationships in Ontario.

The University of Guelph’s Centre for Land and Water Stewardship supports new farmers in the Greenbelt by offering multiple tours of the regions, successfully planting plots of 6 ethno-cultural crops, and providing training and resources to help new farmers onto their feet.
