The Michigan Young Farmer Coalition is a statewide not-for-profit organization working to empower Michigan communities through viable agricultural stewardship.
We are young growers and their supporters living, learning and working in Michigan.
We aim to foster and develop the burgeoning community of experienced young growers; provide material, organizational and educational support; and facilitate action toward an abundant, just and food-secure future.
Currently, we are collaborating with the HAVEN Community in Pontiac in the design and implementation of a half-acre garden and education program; assisting in the development of a farmer residency program; facilitating the experiential education of our members through the “Crop Mobbing” model; sharing resources and holding regional social events to strengthen and develop our membership.
As agricultural stewards, we recognize the importance of having an intimate connection to the land. We believe that it is necessary to have a homebase at which we can produce food, educate our members and community and model responsible stewardship. A sense of place occurs across generations and over the course of time spent working with, relating to and being sustained by the place in which you live.
