2022 Mentorship in Sustainable Agriculture

Application Information


Applicants should be committed to becoming a farmer and eager to learn in order to reach their goals. They should be comfortable following instruction and guidance from the Carnation Farms Mentors and other Carnation Farms staff, working outdoors in adverse weather conditions, operating heavy equipment, and learning in a classroom academic environment. Preference is given to applicants who demonstrate experience in one or more seasons of farming or in an agricultural food production setting. The program requires physical work, including the ability to lift 50 pounds. Carnation Farms will accept five farmers-in-training for 2022.
