Do you feel passion for organic farming and the sustainable agriculture movement? Do you want to immerse yourself in learning organic techniques and walk away feeling confident growing organic produce?
If so, you may be the perfect fit for EarthDance’s Summer Apprenticeship! This full-time 10-week apprenticeship is designed for those with a strong interest in farming who want to fully engage themselves in the day-to-day operations of an organic farm.
Summer Apprentices will be immersed in all areas of crop production at EarthDance. This includes greenhouse seeding and propagation, sowing and transplanting, preparing fields for planting, crop cultivation and maintenance, disease and pest control, harvesting, washing and packing produce. By the end of their 10-week term, Summer Apprentices will be equipped with the knowledge and skill set to work entry level positions in the agricultural industry and or start a small-scale food production operation like a community or school garden.
