Cultivar Learning Network 

The Cultivar Learning Network, supported by our Hispanic Farmer Equity Outreach Program, is an educational and networking development program designed to empower and support rural and urban Latino communities nationwide. These communities are essential to the future of agriculture, food security, and protecting and conserving natural resources. The Cultivar Learning Network helps communicate information about agricultural business opportunities, USDA programs, services to protect the soil and our natural resources, and opportunities for increasing Latino participation in good-paying agriculture jobs and professions.

 

Through our outreach to Hispanic farmers, our company has learned the needs and aspirations of this population, and in response, has developed specific educational modules which build foundational knowledge in areas of critical importance. mano-Y-ola plans to expand our network with nonprofits interested in multiplying our efforts in their community and disseminating this educational information.

 

The educational modules are  Natural Resources Conservation, Introduction to Leadership, Data and Entrepreneurship, Young Future Conservation Professionals, and, coming soon in 2023, Farmers’ Legal Education Assistance and Climate-Smart Agriculture.

 

In the CLN Virtual Internship, after their coursework, interns then design and execute a conservation project in partnership with a local farmer using the knowledge they have gained. Interns will have the opportunity to showcase their presentations at the annual Hispanic Farmers and Agricultural Professionals Symposium.

Additionally, the CLN emphasizes the importance of networking with Hispanic-serving organizations through consistent outreach. Our outreach efforts include working with media to promote our ideas and partnerships, supporting our Student Advisory Collective, connecting with Hispanic-serving Institutions and universities throughout the states, and promoting the aspirations of our student interns.
