FFCC offers programme bursary for young farmers in Northern Ireland

November 15, 2023

Farmers aged 25-35 in Northern Ireland interested in regenerative agriculture are invited to apply for a trailblazing three-year leadership development programme, NextGen-ReGen 2024, launching this week.

Helping farmers to develop their understanding of regenerative farming, challenge the status quo and increase their business confidence, this new programme is designed to empower those on the journey to a more sustainable future for food, farming and the countryside.

Starting with a five day residential course in a stunning location, participants will learn from a brilliant line up of experts. The £3,000 cost for each of the 20 participants will be fully covered as a bursary to help kickstart a widescale transition to regenerative farming in Northern Ireland.

With the residential course followed by eight one day events over three years, the NextGen-ReGen bursary will empower the next generation of regenerative farmers to build a new community of practice.

Applications close on Friday 15th December.
