If this never-ending winter has you plotting your next moves in sustainable farming, you are in luck. The UVM Farmer Training Program has a few spots left for 2015! And some amazing new staff members for you to learn from. Apply now to join an incredible group of students for six months of sustainable farming and food systems education.
UVM’s Farmer Training Program is a 6-month, hands-on program (May 11- October 30, 2015) for aspiring farmers and food systems advocates that provides an experiential, skill-based education in sustainable farming. Students in this program get a unique and comprehensive education by running the 10-acre Catamount Educational Farm from seed to market, learning from expert farmers and educators in the classroom and by working alongside successful, inspiring farmers in the Burlington area.
Participants leave with a Certificate in Sustainable Farming from UVM, a deeper understanding of agricultural management and small-scale farming, the entrepreneurial skills to start their own operation and a network of incredible people to support them along the way.
