Earth Learning is a nonprofit 501 (c) located in Miami hoping to expand the Greater Everglades FoodShed in an environmentally sound way. Community FoodWorks is a project funded by the USDA through the grant to train new and beginning farmers. For more information about our company please visit Earth-Learning.org. All levels of apprentices will have the opportunity to learn the many different facets of food growth and distribution. The program trains individuals in organic and farming practices through three different farm sites, offers a free permaculture design certification class, and allows for them to work at a Farmers’ Market run by Earth Learning.
Managerial Apprenticeships offer experienced farmers and growers the opportunity to share their existing skills and develop new skills in permaculture design and managing Farm Apprentices and Interns from a variety of backgrounds. Managerial Apprentices are central to the operation of Community FoodWorks, and are encouraged to operate with relative autonomy in defining and carrying out the projects they focus on with their apprentice/intern teams.
