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.
