Farmer/writer Elizabeth Henderson has headed up the writing and compilation of our Farmer Toolkit since AJP’s first pilot certifications, and Jon Magee has contributed editing and additions since 2021. The toolkit benefits from major contributions and editing by Leah Cohen, Sally Lee, Chelsie Papiez, and Danielle Mastrogiovanni.
Other farmers, writers, organizers, and organizations have generously shared many of the resources compiled here, and all content remains the property of their respective authors and publishers. If you adapt or use resources shared here, please credit the authors where appropriate. We recommend checking Soul Fire Farm Institute’s usage guidelines for guidance on using other people’s work respectfully.
