The Berry Center has announced the acquisition of a large grant to The Wendell Berry Farming Program via Facebook:
It is rare that a press release feels like such a celebration, but we are delighted to be able to share the following with you. We have been keeping the details under wraps for a little while, but can now make public that thanks to a grant and fundraising challenge from our friends at the NoVo Foundation the Wendell Berry Farming Program of Sterling College will be open and running as a full-time, tuition-free undergraduate program right here in Henry County, Kentucky this fall.
This is a momentous step for the future of farming education and for our particular rural place and those like it in the region and the country.
