Webinar Pasa’s Apprenticeship Programs in Focus

September 29, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free

Changing markets and a changing climate present the next generation of farmers with enormous challenges. Yet, few other ways of life offer the rewards that come from working within natural systems and the satisfaction of feeding a community.

While formal apprenticeships have successfully prepared skilled workers in the trades for more than a century, none were available to farmers until recent years. To train the next generation of sustainable farmers, Pasa facilitates two formal apprenticeship programs that are registered with the Pennsylvania Department of Labor and Industry: Dairy Grazing Apprenticeship and Diversified Vegetable Apprenticeship.

Apprentices hone their skills on working farms under the guidance of experienced mentors. They complete a rigorous curriculum of technical coursework, field days, and workshops. Plus, our apprenticeships are paid—beginning farmers can earn while they learn.

Formal apprenticeships benefit both beginning and experienced farmers. Apprentices receive a well-rounded education in a real-life work setting, while mentor farmers gain access to a pool of skilled, committed employees.

Join Aaron de Long, Dairy Grazing Apprenticeship program manager and Dan Dalton, Diversified Vegetable Apprenticeship program manager, to learn about the apprenticeship programs and have your questions answered live. This webinar is suitable for aspiring farmers as well as experienced farmers interested in hosting apprentices.
