The Annie’s Sustainable Agriculture Scholarships support students working to shape the future of the food system. Annie’s believes this is best accomplished through the lens of three regenerative agriculture principles:
- Building soil health
- Fostering aboveground biodiversity
- Promoting resilient farm communities
The good folks at Annie’s strive to make a positive impact through the foods they make. However, they know that they can’t change the food system alone. By offering student scholarships, they hope to empower the next generation. Food system leaders can reshape the role that agriculture plays in our environment and in our communities.
