We’re growing a crop of new farmers & food business entrepreneurs!
Each of the one-of-a-kind, hands on, 26 day residential and experiential programs intensively explores all aspects of growing certified organic vegetables, fruits, and medicinal herbs as well as year round, climate protected, sustainable hydroponic (grown in water) greens, farm animal care, beekeeping, operating a farm stand and maple sugar house, agritourism events, pick your own, wholesale produce accounts, CSA's, creating farm camps for kids, food & farm tours, wellness retreats, and an introduction to a large variety of local food businesses.
The fee includes the full program, including field trips, 3 organic meals per day, and housing. Ready to apply? Go here.
Some scholarship money may be available to help ag-passionate people who are unemployed, underemployed, or underprivileged. We are seeking funding to create a scholarship fund so that the cost of the program will not be a deterrent for those that really want to participate. If you are an income qualifying Vermonter, you can apply for a VSAC grant.
