The Greenbank Farm Agriculture Training Center is seeking students for the 2012 growing season.
The publicly owned farm offers a residential program with housing. During the course of the season, students will learn the technical and business skills to operate a sustainable, small-scale, organic farm. Students will manage seven acres of land and attend classes and demonstrations on such topics as organic crop production, soil science and business management.
“We have begun accepting students on a monthly basis for next year’s program. So I would encourage interested participants to submit their application as soon as possible,” said instructor and farm manager, Sebastian Aguilar.
The residential and academic program begins in March. Applications are available online at www.greenbankfarm.com, or by calling 360-222-3171. Space is limited to nine students for 2012. Scholarships to assist needy students are available.
