Community Farm Project

Alternative Fairbanks Farm and Educational

and Cooperative Training Program


The AFFECT Community Farm Project mission is to:

  • Increase low-income Fairbanks residents’ access to locally-grown food and agricultural workforce development opportunities in local large- and small-scale agriculture.

  • Improve resilience and access to innovative methods of food production and assist, train, and direct FNSB residents to pursue their own sustainable farming enterprises.

farmer training program

We successfully launched our first year of the Farmer Training Program this summer and will begin our second year of the program in April 2023!

This is a flexible, tuition-free farmer training program.

One class per week and one farm visit per week. 

Additional optional field visits will cover topics such as: foraging, microgreens, mushroom farming, and more!

Check back next year or join our mailing list for updates on the 2023 program and when applications become available!
