Live Power Community Farm Seeking Apprentices

Live Power Community Farm in Mendocino County, Calidfornia is seeking 2-3 apprentices. Live Power is a 40-acre, solar electric and horse-powered, diversified, Demeter Certified Biodynamic® farm. 

Apprenticeship Details: We operate the farm collaboratively with the apprentices. We rotate through areas of responsibility and learning throughout the season. The majority of the learning takes place through the hands-on work itself, and through the discussions that take place while working in the field. We hold a weekly organizational meeting including a garden walk and discussion. Longer, in-depth discussions often take place during meals, or in more formal workshops. We can generally fit in 6 or 7 formal workshops each season, usually during the spring and fall, on topics of the group’s choice. Evening study groups focusing on a specific text are also possible. Apprentices may attend the quarterly meetings of the Biodynamic Association of Northern California, and are invited to seek out other educational opportunities outside of the farm, including workshops and visits to other farms.

Work is full time, from dawn to 6PM Monday through Friday and Saturday until lunch. We take Saturday afternoon and Sunday off. It is demanding work, but it is rewarding, and will give you basic preparation for farm life and for your own endeavor within the context of producing a season's crop. We provide room, board, and a stipend for 4-6 apprentices.

interest for internship 2016

Hi-
My name is Rory Strippel
I am very interested in becoming a intern at Live Power farm. I will be graduating from The University of Iowa REACH program in May 2016 and am available for the upcoming season though I would love to commit to a full years work. I am a hard and dedicated worker. I love farming and working with my hands. I have always dreamed of establishing a self sufficient farm on our family property in central Ohio and I know I have a lot to learn before doing so. I'm looking forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for consideration,

Rory Strippel
