Up to $10,000 Available as Part of Partnership with Center for Agricultural Resilience
HOUSTON, TX, February 13, 2024- Renewa, a leading land and infrastructure investor and advocate for renewable energy, is pleased to announce its partnership with the Center for Agricultural Resilience (CFAR) to offer the Renewa Good Steward Scholarship. This scholarship opportunity aims to support individuals interested in sustainable land use and renewable energy practices, particularly focusing on the innovative approach of solar grazing.
CFAR, founded in 2021 by Will Harris, is a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating, empowering, and equipping individuals and organizations on the benefits of resilient agriculture. Located at White Oak Pastures in Bluffton, Georgia, CFAR offers various programs throughout the year.
“We are thrilled to partner with CFAR to offer the Renewa Good Steward Scholarship,” said Stephen Lee, Renewa Co-Founder and Co-CEO. “This initiative aligns with Renewa’s commitment to sustainability and renewable energy. By supporting individuals interested in regenerative agriculture and renewable energy practices, we hope to foster the next generation of land ambassadors and contribute to a more resilient agricultural ecosystem.”
The Renewa Good Steward Scholarship will cover the total cost of one session of CFAR’s Solar Grazing Workshop for one recipient, for up to four sessions per year. The Solar Grazing Workshop is a three-day program that explores the intersection of renewable energy production and responsible livestock grazing. Led by experts from White Oak Pastures and solar site owners/managers, participants gain insights into solar grazing, from site tours to contract negotiations, and learn how this practice can be integrated into diverse farm operations.
“We are grateful for Renewa’s generous offer to provide the Renewa Good Steward Scholarship. This makes it possible for worthy applicants to attend boots-on-the-ground training that is only available through experts like the seasoned managers who operate White Oak Pastures,” said Will Harris, Founder of CFAR.
“We are excited to join forces with CFAR to launch the Renewa Good Steward Scholarship. This collaboration marks just the beginning of our partnership with CFAR and similar initiatives aimed at promoting sustainable land use and renewable energy practices,” said Gage Mooring, Renewa Co-Founder and Co-CEO.
