SOIL links Canadian farmers willing to take on and train apprentices with people who want to work and learn on an organic farm using sustainable practices. The 2017/18 'apprentice seeking season' is gathering steam and it's a good time to put your applications in. We have farmer hosts all across Canada and have been providing this service since 1989.
Apprenticeships are available to anyone over 18 years old who is healthy, self motivated and eager to learn. A time commitment of eight weeks is usually required. A full-season commitment is usually preferred. Typically, apprenticeships take place between May and September, although many farms need help all year round. Most apprenticeships involve labor in exchange for room, board and the opportunity to learn, although some farms provide a wage or small allowance.
