Farm & Food system
Allegheny Mountain Institute believes in the power of food to build vibrant, healthy communities.
That's why AMI's tuition-free Fellowship fully sponsors, trains, and empowers Fellows to become teachers and advocates for a food system that is socially, environmentally, and economically just. Selected Fellows spend six months in experiential, residential Farm and Food Study at AMI’s Allegheny Farm Campus, followed by a Community Action Year, applying their training in partnership with regional non-profit organizations.
The AMI Fellowship builds strong leaders who successfully work to transform the food system. AMI alumni go on to work as farmers, educators, scientists, food entrepreneurs, designers, non-profit leaders, policymakers, and lifelong leaders in the food movement.
