Summer Apprentice Program

Program Description

The summer apprentice program is designed for young people interested in exploring organic, community-based agriculture as a career option. Apprentices will work alongside our 4-person crew of experienced growers and benefit from their combined 50+ years of experience. The unpaid apprenticeship is an exchange of labor for education.

Organic, community-based agriculture is complex, and a wide range of skills are necessary for success. On any given day, a grower might scout for pests, fix a broken tractor, troubleshoot irrigation, seed a winter's worth of carrots, engage with customers at the farm stand, and post all about it on social media. The work is romantic and monotonous, thrilling and tedious.
