Educational and work experience on small scale ecological, organic, or regenerative farms. Each farm offers different skills and has different aspects ranging from beekeeping,cattle, pigs, poultry, and sheep to gardening and food storage to soil health, pasture management and even mechanics and carpentry.

The apprentice will participate in the educational and labor on the farm, learning in both ways.
