If you're ready for a full, hands-on experience that will immerse you in ecological farming then you've come to the right place. CRAFT (Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training) is your gateway to a farming training experience that will change your life. Whether your dream is to have your own organic farm one day or you just want to learn some food-growing and hands-on skills that can be applied in other parts of your life, farming training is a powerful experience that will equip you with the tools and insights to make a real difference in the world.
CRAFT South West Ontario is a collaboration of organic and biodynamic farms whose aim is to provide opportunities for individuals to learn about ecological agricultural production through a training experience. Each CRAFT farm offers their own education model in conjunction with monthly CRAFT field days. These on-farm training days are open to interns from all CRAFT South West Ontario farms and include a potluck lunch, a group activity, a workshop, and a field tour.
Each CRAFT farm operates independently and offers its own training program with individualized agreements around such things as living and eating arrangements, stipends, work hours, training methods, and program start and end dates.
