Thank you for being part of the Apprenticeship Program!

The host farm mentors are the heart of this program. We believe that farmers grow other farmers and your dedication to the training and development of these apprentices is what is truly going to grow the next generation of farmers. We are so excited to have you as a partner in this work!

Over the course of this program, we will work with you to offer an experiential learning opportunity in ecological and regenerative food production and land stewardship for your apprentice. You will introduce them about regenerative farming principles like building healthy soil, growing biodiversity, promoting clean water cycles, carbon sequestration, practicing ethical animal husbandry, and supporting caring people and communities.

About this Online Course

This online course will orient you to Young Agrarians and the Apprenticeship program. It will provide training, tips and resources for how to be a great mentor and employer. We encourage you to complete the modules before your apprentice begins but this course is also for here for you as a refresher throughout the season.
