GreenWave hosts a competitive two-year ocean Farmer-in-Training Program for residents of southern New England. (Not in southern New England? Visit our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page to learn more about how to get involved.) As a GreenWave farmer-in-training, you will receive technical assistance, hands-on training and free kelp seed—as you work to site, permit, and deploy your ocean farm. Year-one of the program focuses on site selection and design, permitting, licensing, and gear. Year-two of the program focuses on helping you deploy your gear and seed as well as harvest your kelp for the first time. For more information about GreenWave and our Farmer-in-Training Program, please review our FAQ page.
