Email us a resume (including 3 references) and a letter explaining your interest in the position. We are particularly interested in hearing about why you are drawn to Square Roots Farm and this experience in particular. Once we hear from you, we will be in touch to schedule an interview. Although we are happy to interview remotely, we strongly encourage an in-person visit to the farm before beginning the apprentice ship.
We can't wait to hear from you!
Since we run a small farm with a small crew (two farmers, one manager, and one-two apprentices), you'll work with a farmer every day. Whether you plan to start your own farm or are just exploring, this is a great way to immerse yourself in the experience and get a feel for what it's really like. Apprentices are trained in caring for all of our enterprises, but there is also flexibility for catering the position to individual interests. Expect to do some grunt work, but also to learn how to operate tools and equipment. Be ready to work as part of a crew with a supervisor, and also be prepared to take initiative and lead projects or groups of volunteers. The apprenticeship is demanding and jam-packed with opportunities to learn and contribute.
