Benefits

An underlying goal of the Apprenticeship Program is to allow for opportunities that build skillsets and confidence through hands-on learning. We will do our best to facilitate chances for learning both on and off the College Farm. Off-farm activities will include occasional fieldtrips during the paid work week, as well as optional social or educational visits to other farms during evening or weekend hours. Past apprentices have commented that they gained a well-rounded experience by proactively connecting with other farmers outside of the regular work week – these activities are optional but encouraged so long as apprentices maintain the stamina needed to complete their core roles on the College Farm.  The Apprenticeship Program is also a chance to live and work on a farm - witnessing the seasonal transitions and other discoveries of place-based living that can only been experienced through on-site residency. By living on the farm, this program aims to cultivate a sense of community among the farm residents.

In addition to earning an hourly pay wage, apprentices are provided housing in one of the farm’s yurts which are off the grid and fully furnished. Apprentices will share a kitchen, common room, and bathroom facility. Food raised on the farm is up for grabs to our apprentices, including free produce and discounted access to retail items such as meat and eggs from the farm.
