Farm Crew 2017 at Sweet Roots Farm
Would you like to spend the 2018 growing season working alongside a farmer in Nevada County?  Apply now for Farm Crew 2018!  This exciting training program is launching its second season and we have a great line up of potential host farms ready to help train the next generation of farmers.  Farm Crew members work side by side with agricultural mentors on commercial farms while attending an advanced production skills class and receiving one-on-one support from Sierra Harvest.
“Through Sierra Harvest and Farm Crew I’ve been placed with an amazing farm… Working there has taught me so much alongside the weekly Farm Crew classes.  Not only have I learned things that I’m already using, but I’m constantly getting inspired as well. I also love how I’ve also been connected with an amazing community of farmers and lovers of local food.”  Farm Crew member 2017
Hardworking individuals with a commitment to careers in production agriculture and who have spent at least one season working on a farm or ranch are encouraged to apply here.  Once through an initial screening process, qualified applicants will be passed on to host-farms for hiring by March 2018.  If you have any questions, please visit our website, https://sierraharvest.org/farm-crew/, or contact molly@sierraharvest.org.
