FARM APPRENTICE on KROKA FARM in NEW HAMPSHIRE – 2018

  • Full season: April – October Summer season: June – August 


ABOUT KROKA FARM
Here at Kroka we use biodynamic and organic practices with our foremost intention being caring for and healing the land with the result of growing food that is of its highest potential in nourishment and sustenance. With the farm as an important part of our curriculum, students help with daily chores; mucking stalls, collecting eggs, feeding and watering all of the animals, loading and delivering wood with horse and wagon, and working in the gardens, cultivating and harvesting the food that they eat. Students participate in food processing, often preserving food for their own expeditions and for others in the Kroka community to enjoy. During the growing season Kroka offers an Apprenticeship Program (see below for more information).

AT KROKA FARM, apprentices have an unique opportunity to learn about organic and biodynamic farming, work with students in a farm setting and live in a robust intentional community of exceptional young people.
