Sustainable Nantucket is pleased to announce the SN Agricultural Apprenticeship Initiative for the 2012 season. Our Agricultural Apprentices work in cooperation with specific island growers. Individuals selected for these positions supports the local farmers by learning sustainable agriculture and/or food production methods; the business of running a successful farm, and/or CSA; creating local merchant relationships; operating a farmer’s market booth; and contextualizing this experience within the wider perspective of the nonprofit. Apprentices are placed with growers whose business corresponds as closely as possible with that of the apprentice’s goals, interests and skills. The apprenticeship will extend from June – August and involve a minimum of 200 hours of on-site work.
