Regenerative Farming Certification

Hayes Farm, Fredericton, New Brunswick

Reconnect with the land and community to find your purpose. This is no ordinary program. If you’re looking to see how food justice, food security, and climate issues play out in the real world, this program is for you. Put your knowledge to work in the fields of Hayes Farm, a working farm in the heart of Fredericton.

Regenerative agriculture enriches the soil instead of depleting it, respects nature instead of exploiting it, captures carbon instead of releasing it, and supports the interconnectedness of every aspect of our food web and communities.

The Regenerative Farming Certificate is a holistic community-led farm program that provides the skills, expertise and support to practice human-scale agriculture. By demonstrating this model of seasonal food production, we address local food security, financial responsibility, and personal and spiritual fulfillment.

Program dates: April 29, 2019 through August 30, 2019

Hours: 35 hours per week, weekdays 8:00am to 4:00pm with half-day Fridays 9:00 am to 1:00pm, plus occasional evenings and weekends.

Membership fee: $2,000

To Apply: Full program details and application forms are now available at https://www.hayesfarm.ca/education
