MSU Student Organic Farm 2014 Organic Farmer Training Program
The Organic Farmer Training Program offers nine months of intensive instruction in year-round organic farming. The program focuses on diversified production of vegetables, livestock, flowers, fruits and herbs for local markets. Participants manage all aspects of a 15-acre certified organic farm, including passive solar greenhouses used for year-round production in cold climates. Participants also manage the Student Organic Farm's field and hoophouse production. Produce is grown for the farm’s primary markets, including a 48-week CSA, seven-month on-campus farm stand, and sales to campus dining services.
Scholarships are available. Visit their website for full program description and application: http://msuorganicfarm.org/organic-farmer-training-program. The farm may be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org or 517-230-7987.
