New Farm Institute’s (NFI) mission is to educate, assist and inspire a new generation of sustainable farmers in Central Texas. NFI’s initiatives build upon the education and outreach efforts begun in 2006 by the founders of Green Gate Farms, a community-based, certified organic farm with locations in Austin and Bastrop, Texas.
New Farm Institute, a 501(c)3 created in 2012, provides farm-based education including: camps, workshops, and an Incubator Farm. Comprised of farmers, citizens and community activists, NFI is dedicated to engaging people of all ages and abilities in healthy foods and sustainable farming.
In addition to numerous classes, workshops, camps, and events, the Institute has created an Incubator Farm for beginning professional farmers in Central Texas.*
NFI is particularly interested in exploring emerging markets for new farmers, particularly in the field of public health. Our Sponsored Share program is one example of the links possible between business, local farmers and disease prevention.
NFI welcomes your support and your ideas.
