Farm apprentices will learn from seed to harvest the ins and outs of arid lands agriculture. By committing to 5 months and at least 16 hours a month of volunteering, the farm apprentices not only help the farm grow and flourish, but gain valuable skills related to arid lands food production. Farm apprentices will have the opportunity to attend occasional farm trainings, will receive a certificate at the end of their term, will receive veggie vouchers that can be used at our farmers markets, and will become a member of our “farm-ily.” No experience necessary!
