EarthDance is now accepting applications for our 2012 Organic Farming Apprenticeship! Here’s what some of this year’s farmies have to say about the program:
- “I wanted a great learning experience and this is exceeding my expectations. Each shift I learn something.”
- “The apprenticeship is a commitment, but well worth it!”
- “What I’ve appreciated most is meeting so many amazing people. Truly enlivens what community farming is about.”
The EarthDance Organic Farming Apprenticeship is an opportunity to learn how to grow food on a productive farm, close to home. The program was designed to serve the needs of urban and suburban dwellers who are interested in learning to grow their own food or exploring careers in sustainable agriculture, but are not yet able to devote themselves to full-time farming.
The program is a commitment of 10 hours per week over the course of the growing season. The apprenticeship consists of hands-on learning through farm and market work, weekly enrichment sessions, and field trips to other local farms. Also, each week apprentices take home a share of the harvest!
