Farm Apprentices Sought for 2019 Season

SCLT is looking for five full-time apprentices for the 2019 season to work on local farms. Apprentices will acquire in-depth farm skills from farm mentors, and participate in farm tours, classes and network-building opportunities. They will also develop education plans with their host farmers and participate in SCLT’s beginning farmer training program.

Apprentices are funded for seven months each season, but this year there is also the possibility of 18-month managerial apprenticeships with livestock farms that will run from April 2019 through September 2020.
