The students train at Foot Print Farms and also do sweat equity. Dr. Ayers-Elliott also trains community members. “The whole goal of this is to create entrepreneurs as well as agriculture producers,” Dr. Ayers-Elliott says. “We’ll teach them every aspect of the growing process, as well as the marketing.”
Foot Print Farms also does community-supported agriculture. The subscription plans are flexible and affordable. Jacksonians can also find the farm’s produce and other products at the Mississippi Farmers’ Market most Saturdays.
Foot Print Farms is also certified as a farmers’ market, which means people can use their Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program or Electronic Benefit Transfer cards on the farm.
Dr. Ayers-Elliott wants to add more of an agri-tourism aspect to Foot Print Farms. "One of Foot Print Farm's major focuses is informing people and getting them to understand that AG-Careers are good fields to major in," says Dr. Ayers-Elliott.
