A nonprofit based in New York City and Connecticut that provides training, tools, and support to a baseline of 10,000 regenerative ocean farmers
GreenWave is a nonprofit based in New York City and Connecticut that provides training, tools, and support to a baseline of 10,000 regenerative ocean farmers. Its goal is to catalyze the planting of 1 million acres of regenerative ocean farms and yield meaningful economic and climate impacts.
GreenWave’s online Ocean Farming Hub supports ocean farmers from seed to sale. It includes the Regenerative Ocean Farming Toolkit to provide farmers with tools and a knowledge network to plan, permit, and launch their own farms; a community hub where folks can collaborate to scale their farms; and the Seaweed Source—a marketplace where farmers can market and negotiate with distributors.
Since launching the first regional training program in 2017, GreenWave has trained and supported more than 900 emerging ocean farmers and hatchery technicians. Beginning with broad opportunities, like introductory webinars and access to courses on the Hub, farmers who achieve certain milestones (such as permitting an ocean farm) can access technical support services such as farmer-only workshops and direct engagement with experts in the online community.
