Organic Farming Educational Program

07Oct

Live Earth Farm, established in 1996, is an 80 acre diversified, organic, family farm overlooking the Pajaro Valley in the Santa Cruz area of California. We offer a year round CSA with 850 members during the regular season. We grow 50 different fruits and vegetables ranging from perennial fruit trees to a wide variety of annual crops. We sell our produce at five area farmer’s markets and through our CSA program.

We are offering a Farm Educator Apprenticeship this school year. This apprenticeship will have a unique focus on our education programs. The apprentice will spend at least 50% of their time on these activities and the other 50% on farm tasks. Education programs include, but are not limited to: a weekly visit by 7th and 8th grade Montessori students, half day farm tours for students of all ages and once monthly home schooling family visits.

The position will involve leading farm tours, working with ongoing farm education programs and some office work such as scheduling farm tours and processing deposits and payments. Farm tasks include vegetable and fruit production and marketing, animal care and greenhouse management.

Qualifications:

The right person for this position will be able to demonstrate experience and basic theoretical knowledge in organic and sustainable food production systems, as well as basic office skills. Experience working with kids in an outdoor setting is a plus. Ideally, you will have worked an entire season on a farm or garden project and be bilingual in Spanish. This is a learning experience, we expect you to arrive with a good work ethic and a positive attitude. Please be aware that farming is hard work and we require a full season commitment. This is a position for someone seriously interested in sustainable farming, food, and community education. It can serve as a stepping stone to pursue a career as an educator and/or farmer, as we offer the opportunity to learn the ropes of a small scale organic farming operation and farm education nonprofit.

Duration:

We ask that you arrive on the farm by the beginning of November. This will give our Education Director and current apprentice an opportunity to work with you one on one. We ask that you stay for a full year through October 2011 so that you can participate in the full school year cycle.

Hours:

40 hrs/wk

Compensation:

$16, 000/year. A private yurt and communal living area and kitchen are available for rent for $500/mo. We strongly encourage living on site, due to the nature of the work. In addition, the farm will provide produce, eggs, and goat’s milk.

FORGET IT as with U of P

Forget it as with U of P. most of these online outfits are NOT accredited. if I recall this WGU touts itself as having a nursing program.but that is NOT accepted. so forget it. as with most of the online outfits with impressive names,they COST MORE than a conventional community college. see WSJ article a few months ago on that regard. it makes more sense and you get a better education for less cost at a community college close by. these outfits prey on the minds of many. the total cost is about $100,000 in school loans. and guess what? the degree is worthless. so you are stuck. some programs like engineeering at Devry are not acceptable for the PE license in any state and the graduates have to start over
