The Ecosystem Farm hires three individuals for each growing season as apprentices. This is an intensive "land-based training" program in organic vegetable production, with opportunities to work in livestock production, for those who have a demonstrated and serious desire to pursue farming as a way of life. Some apprentices stay on for a second year with greater responsibilities and opportunities to pursue research and entrepreneurial projects. Our goal is to practice and demonstrate a sustainable agriculture. The work is challenging, physically, mentally, and emotionally, although instruction is provided in a safe and organized manner. Accordingly, safety and personal accountability are expected to be taken very seriously. One Internship starts March 1, 2010 and ends November 24, 2010 and two Internships start April 1, 2010 and end October 31, 2010.
