Apprenticeships 2019

The South Whidbey School Farm program is seeking summer apprentices from June – August. At this time our classes are winding up, but we are planting for our fall season so that the farms are at peak production in September when the students return.

The apprenticeship is ideal for individuals who want to learn skills related to growing food in a school setting, including soil cultivation, composting, vermiculture, crop rotation, and much more. No experience is necessary. This is a skill-building opportunity and we are seeking enthusiastic and capable learners. The apprentices will be working at the 4 growing sites (1.25 acres) in our school farm system.

Apprentices will also have the opportunity to work and learn at the Good Cheer Food Bank gardens.
