Sustainable Agriculture Apprenticeship

CEFS’ Sustainable Agriculture Apprenticeship Program is a hands-on work and study program that trains participants in many aspects of sustainable agriculture production and research.

Apprenticeships are offered in several different focus areas; apprentices apply to the specific apprenticeship that best fits their skills, interests, and goals. The 2019 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 months with a flexible start date between March and May 2019.

Applications are no longer being accepted for 2019 Sustainable Agriculture Apprenticeships, but you can learn more about the program here!
