Start Farming Now! Learn how at The School of Adaptive Agriculture:
"Now that spring is in full effect having the ability to grow your own food definitely comes to mind. Here at the School of Adaptive Agriculture we have been busy preparing the next generation of farmers. Our Practicum Program is for adults who have decided to enter the sustainable food system. If you want to be among the million new farmers and leaders the US needs in order to transform agriculture, please join us for a 13 week residency program. Our campus is located on a historic 5,000 acre working ranch in Willits, Northern California.
We offer a combination of experiential learning, practicing and working alongside farmers, which we find essential for pursuing new creative, profitable and sustainable ways to grow food. Classroom education is designed to set students up with a specific vocabulary, skill set, and theoretical understanding of small scale agriculture. Weekly field trips bring a unique learning experience, providing students with a diverse preview and a network to help launch them into a new career."
The Summer Program starts on July 22nd, 2019 and ends on October 18, 2019. Applications are due Saturday, June 1st, 2019.
