Permaculture Farm Apprentice

Sorrento Centre Farm is seeking a Permaculture Farm Apprentice for 2021. This is a 24-week full-time internship that offers engaging work and an opportunity to gain career skills in the beautiful setting of the Shuswap in the interior of BC. As a Permaculture Farm Apprentice, you will work with the Farm Manager to care for an acre of market garden; plan, develop and build infrastructure for an additional 4 acres of annual market garden, perennial fruit plots and an eventual food forest garden.

This position will be a great opportunity for the candidate to participate and learn about the transition process as well as gaining valuable hands-on experience in turning a property from conventionally farmed land into a regenerative, eco-friendly landscape.
