AERO received funding through a Western SARE Grant to bring 6 beginning (5 years or less on-farm experience) and/or military veteran farmers to the 2018 Expo and Annual Meeting in Missoula, October 26-28. Expo Farmer Fellows receive a full ticket to the Expo, which includes meals, 2 nights lodging, travel reimbursements up to $75, participation in a session with keynote speaker Dr Miguel Altieri, and a one-year AERO membership. In exchange, Farmer Fellows agree to write an essay on their experience and knowledge gained, which AERO will use for reporting and also feature in our newsletter, the Sun Times.

Applications are due by August 15.
