This apprenticeship is a non-paid internship is an exchange of time and learning between experienced and new farmers.

This immersion into all aspects of vegetable, industrial hemp and flower production gives new farmers valuable skills and experience to begin their career in regenerative agriculture. Whether they start their own farm or go on to work in public gardens, landscaping, school gardens or farm to table restaurants, apprentices gain a firm foundation and confidence to succeed.
GOALS OF THE APPRENTICESHIP:
– To share the skills involved in regenerative land management and the tools of the trade
– To offer apprentices an example of a successful regenerative farming so that they can learn the cycles of the growing season
