Apprenticeships are a great way to explore your farm dream and learn some useful skills. If you are thinking about getting into farming or just having a really large garden, this is your place to start. Wheelbarrow Farm has been in operation for 11 years and we continue to grow. This year we are importing a first-of-its-kind electric farm tractor. We'll also be installing a 14kW solar array.

Apprentices live at the farm during the growing season, working and learning alongside the staff and volunteers. In exchange for your efforts in the field (5 days/week) we teach you everything that we know, we feed and house you, we provide 6 full days of field-trip workshops on other farms and we also do many on-farm workshops. We provide a $500/month stipend.

Apprenticeship positions are available from May until September/October.

Accommodations are private cabins or a private room in the main house.
