Thank you for your interest in our Farmer-in-Training Program.

The 2019 program application period will re-open May 1.

GreenWave hosts a competitive two-year ocean farmer training program. Our farmers-in-training receive free technical assistance and hands-on farm training, ranging from permitting support and farm-set up to harvesting and market access. We currently work in New England, and are expanding to California, the Pacific Northwest, and other regions.

The 2019 application period begins on May 1 and ends on May 22. We will conduct interviews in June and the new farmers will be selected by the end of July.

At this time, GreenWave accepts up to ten new farmers into the program each year. In the future, we hope to expand our program offerings to accommodate more interested farmers, including workshops open to those outside of the Farmer-in-Training program. During this time of transition, we are prioritizing applicants that have made headway in the permitting process. 

Residents of all backgrounds and skill sets who have a strong interest in starting their own ocean farm are encouraged to apply! 

Please fill out the form below to be notified when the application re-opens.

Our training program is currently focused in New England. If you’re interested and live outside of New England, please submit your information below and we’ll keep you up-to-date on our expansion plans and future training resources.
