The Grange School of Adaptive Agriculture now open for 2016 applications
The Grange School of Adaptive Agriculture (GSAA), located in Willitis, California, is an educational training center that equips the current and next generation of farmers and advocates with essential skills in the science, art, and business of food.
Cultivating an ability to adapt new, ecologically conscientious approaches to constantly changing contexts is essential to successful food production. Indeed, at the core of the philosophy of Adaptive Agriculture is the belief that adaptation, information, and creativity are the essential qualities required to grow healthy food. Adaptive Agriculture encapsulates a broad spectrum of strategies and skillsets for growing food responsibly.
Are you ready to be a part of the dynamic future of food?
Grange School of Adaptive Agriculture programs recognize that food production will never be the same again. We are looking for people who are determined and creative. Students should have a desire to enter into a career equipped with essential skills in the science, art, and business of food production.
Our 14 week Practicum Student Program is an adult, residential program. You will be fully immersed in the daily life of a beautiful 5,000 acre working ranch in Mendocino County, California. We believe there is no silver bullet to solving the food crisis facing our world, so we teach the spectrum of sustainable agricultural theory. We also teach engine repair, carpentry, animal husbandry, soil and ecology, crop production, entrepreneurial skills, and much, much more. Our curriculum is comprehensive as well as adaptive to individual interests.
You will leave with hands-on practical experience, a network of mentors and peers, and a sense of the nobility of this profession. You are the next generation of food security. We can’t wait to meet you!
