Due to the current COVID-19 (Coronavirus) crisis we are not starting any new apprenticeship. Once normal operations resume at NC State University we will update the application process. Thank you for your patience.

Sustainable Agriculture Apprenticeships

CEFS’ Sustainable Agriculture Apprenticeship Program is a hands-on work and study program that trains participants in many aspects of sustainable agriculture production, research, and education, as well as provides networking opportunities across the state.

Apprenticeships are offered in several different focus areas; apprentices apply to the specific apprenticeship that best fits their skills, interests, and career goals. The 2020 Sustainable Agriculture Apprenticeships are being offered at CEFS’ Field Research, Education, and Outreach Facility at Cherry Research Farm in Goldsboro, NC and at the NC State University Agroecology Education Farm in Raleigh, NC.  Apprenticeship appointments are for six or nine months, with a flexible start date between March and May 2020.
