Program Description
The Land Stewardship Project is a nonprofit membership organization, founded in 1982 to foster an ethic of stewardship for farmland, to promote sustainable agriculture, and to develop sustainable communities. LSP is a grassroots organization made up of farmers, rural and urban residents. LSP promotes successful, family-scale farms raising both crops and livestock in ways that protect and enhance the environment, support rural communities and produce healthful food.

Farm Beginnings™ is a Land Stewardship Project initiative that provides participants an opportunity to learn firsthand about low-cost, sustainable methods of farming. Farm Beginnings™ is a comprehensive farmer-led mentorship and training program designed to help beginning farmers get started farming. The foundation of this ten-month course is a combination of seminars addressing sustainable production, goal setting, business planning and management, including financial planning and alternative marketing practices. The course also includes opportunities for hands-on farm experience with established farmers through mentorships and farm tours.

The Farm Beginnings™ program is currently in its ninth year in Minnesota, and recently collaborated with organizations and individuals to replicate the program in Missouri, Nebraska and Illinois.
