Berkshire Agricultural Gives $10,000 Grant To Greenagers

GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass — Berkshire Agricultural Ventures' (BAV) announces a $10,000 grant to Berkshire-based nonprofit, Greenagers. 
 
The grant will both support Greenagers' second year of apprenticeships ($2,800) at their farm at April Hill Conservation and Conservation Center as well as offset the cost of a pilot year of Greenagers Helping Farm Hands project ($7,200). 
 
"We are happy to be supporting Greenagers training the next generation of farmers through their apprenticeship at April Hil. We also see a big win/win getting young adults working for Greenagers exposed to a variety of farms through the Helping Hands Program, all while giving the farmers the extra hands needed for big projects," Dan Carr, outreach and technical assistance coordinator at BAV said.
 
Specifically, this grant will help Greenagers apprentices learn how to re-engage the agricultural land at April Hill Farm from pasture and hay production to a diversified farm that will include tree nuts, tree and vine fruits, vegetables, beef, lamb, duck eggs, chicken eggs, conservation nursery stock, pollinator habitat, and honey.
