Rolling admission is now open on UVM’s Farmer Training Program! This is a 6-month, hands-on program (May 4 – October 30, 2015) for aspiring farmers and food systems advocates that provides an experiential, skill-based education in sustainable farming. Students in this program get a unique and comprehensive education by running the 10-acre Catamount Educational Farm from seed to market, learning from expert farmers and educators in the classroom and by working alongside successful, inspiring farmers in the Burlington area. Participants leave with a Certificate in Sustainable Farming from UVM, a deeper understanding of agricultural management and small-scale farming, the entrepreneurial skills to start their own operation and a network of incredible people to support them along the way.

The UVM Farmer Training Program is now accepting applications until November 14 for early admission to the 2015 cohort! (After that admission will be rolling until spots and the waitlist are filled.) Apply now to join an incredible group of students for six months of sustainable farming and food systems education.

You can learn more at the Farmer Training Program website, the program’s Facebook page, and on their blog.
