1. Groundswell worked with area farmers to start the Finger Lakes CRAFT program, a group of farmers and interns that meet monthly for advanced training and mentoring.
2. We taught our first college-level class, the Summer Practicum in Sustainable Farming and Local Food Systems through the Tompkins County Community College.
3. We launched the Ithaca Crop Mob, a volunteer-based organization that brings community members together monthly for on-farm work parties.
