Farmer Training Program
Dates: May 2, 2012-October 31, 2012
The Farmer Training Program is a 6-month intensive program for aspiring farmers and food systems advocates that provides a hands-on, skill-based education in sustainable agriculture. This full-time program offers participants the unique opportunity to manage their own growing site, take classes from professors and expert farmers, and rotate as workers and learners on successful, diverse farms in the Burlington area. This program will provide an intense, supportive experience where participants leave with a Certificate in Sustainable Farming, a deeper understanding of agricultural management and small-scale farming, and the entrepreneurial skills to start their own operation.
I’m swooning, I swear! UVM is within driving distance! The program is $6,000 and I don’t know if it qualifies for financial aid, but no matter, this is something worth saving up for!
