We're an educational non-profit working to cultivate healthy communities through food and education. We envision a thriving network of collaborative, vibrant communities that value the connection between food and health.
AMI’s tuition-free Farm Fellowship is six-month program designed for individuals interested in rural agriculture and sustainable farming. Fellows live and work on a Certified Naturally Grown farm, study and practice cottage industry skills, and distribute fresh produce.
AMI is dedicated to training farmers and gardeners, bolstering the local food economy, and improving access to healthy, nutrient-dense food. Our produce is incorporated into educational and health promotion projects, donated to hunger relief, and is available for sale at local outlets.
The AMI Farm at Augusta Health is a joint venture of AMI and Augusta Health to raise awareness about the importance of healthy eating and sustainable growing practices to promote health and wellbeing in the community. Join our educational sessions!
