A limited number of apprenticeships are available.
Summer apprenticeships are from February through October. A winter apprenticeship is available from October through January. During the apprenticeship, independent projects are encouraged.
We offer a small stipend ($100/week), housing with access to a kitchen and the Internet. Apprentices may attend CEFS workshops free of charge and may have the opportunity to participate in the formal internship seminars.
The deadline for applications is January 3, 2011. Please visit our website at CEFS Small Farm Unit Apprenticeship Program http://www.cefs.ncsu.edu/getinvolved/apprenticeships.html to find out more information about the program!
