Boot Camp for Journalists: The Future of Food and Agriculture

May 24th, 2016 All Day - May 27th, 2016

It’s an age of abundance, one in which the ability of farmers to produce has never been greater. At the same time, the way that food is grown, marketed, sold and, unfortunately, wasted is filled with controversy – over labels, growing methods, GMOs, pesticide and herbicide use, antibiotics, global trade and government regulation. Over four days, journalists will dive into a range of topics, taking them from the fields to the dinner table to a peek into the future of agriculture. Included will be field trips to an organic farm and to Monsanto’s research facility.

The all-expenses-paid fellowship covers airfare, ground transportation, hotel costs and most meals. NPF offers this professional development opportunity for journalists to enhance skills, increase knowledge and recharge their reporting on one of today’s most critical issues. Apply here. Please note: This program is for U.S. based journalists only.
