Vermont: UVM seeks applicants for new Farmer Apprentice Program

5 Jan

The University of Vermont in partnership with the Intervale Center (www.intervale.org) has created a 7 month Farmer Apprentice Program.  This program provides a hands-on, entrepreneurial approach to sustainable farming. Through exclusive, multi-party partnerships this program provides participants the uncommon opportunity to manage their own growing site and rotate as workers and learners between successful, diverse farms at the award-winning Intervale Center – a farm and business incubator which Kiplinger’s Magazine recently named the “crown jewel of localvores” that is located in the heart of the small, vibrant city of Burlington, VT.

To learn more about the program or apply to be a participant, please visit

If you have further questions about the program, please contact me, Andrea Ziga at 802.656.1425 or at andrea.ziga@uvm.edu.
