Who's it for?
Farmers in the Southern Appalachian region.
What problem does it solve?
Finding and connecting with people who are serious about learning the sustainable farming trade with farmers who are willing to tech them can be challenging.
How does it help?
The Apprentice Link database bridges the gap for you! Our programs’ emphasis is specifically in the Southern Appalachians, with a focus on farms that participate in local Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training (CRAFT) programs.
To be included in this listing, Organic Growers School has vetted each farm to determine of the following criteria has been met: Farms are actively engaged in the local community. Farms are using organic and/or sustainable production methods. Organic Certification and other certifications are not required, but we do ask that farms and farmers are “in-the-know” and conscientiously practicing organic standards. Farms are dedicated to training new farmers by providing education as a pinnacle element of their apprenticeship program.
