International Stewards

Join the next generation of agrarian leaders. Become a MESA Steward!

US-based programs are designed for aspiring or established farmers, recent agriculture graduates, and sustainable agriculture advocates from around the world.

MESA Stewards come with a wide range of expertise and life experience. Some work on family farms, others are emerging community leaders or working toward advanced degrees in agroecology and similar disciplines. Many come from regions that have been in conflict for long periods, where the future of small-scale food production is uncertain. If you’d like to gain hands-on experience in sustainable agriculture, share your social and agricultural traditions, and earn a Certificate in Applied Agroecology, click the links to learn more about joining MESA.
