Here’s a little more information about the AGS Mentorship:

 
This national program supports mentors with two four-hour training sessions that cover the basics of rotational grazing and the mentorship process as well as continued support. This program supports mentors with both regular peer-to-peer sessions and on-demand resource materials. Mentors work through provincial partners who support them with extension support and delivering the training. Mentors are generally someone already well versed in rotational grazing and interested in helping 10 to 20 farmers develop their own grazing plans.
