Whether you’re a beginning farmer seeking a guided pathway to managing or starting your own vegetable farm, or you’re an established farmer interested in sharing your knowledge and at the same time improving your workforce, PASA’s Diversified Vegetable Apprenticeship may be just what you’re looking for!
Launched in early 2019, Diversified Vegetable Apprenticeship is a formal apprenticeship registered with the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry. The program pairs beginning farmers with experienced farmers (“master growers”) for a two-season, mutually beneficial training experience. Apprentices acquire 2,700+ hours of paid, on-the-job training and complete 200+ hours of related coursework, while the farmers who host them gain a committed employee invested in farming as a career.
During this webinar, we’ll explain how the apprenticeship program works, what you can expect from the experience, and how you can participate as either an apprentice or master grower.
