An interesting article highlighting issues related to converting to certified organic farms, the age gap of current farmers and lack of clear succession opportunities. A great mention of two groups trying to address these issues; Evelyn Rosas who is a sustainable agriculture specialist and the coordinator of Austin Community College’s Sustainable Agriculture Entrepreneur Program, and Farmshare Austin who provide farm training.
