A Stewardship with Body and Land - Self & Soul Center, Talent, OR

Just as nature grows with the energies of the soil, water, sun, and cosmic forces forming an interactive ecology integral to the health of the land, self development opens with the integration of the five elements-earth, water, fire, air and either. In Biodynamics, Steiner advocated that the farmer should establish a personal relationship to everything in farming because the process of growing is directly connected with continuous inner development. Seeing the farm as a living individuality on its way to becoming a being, is understanding the self in connection to nature.

2 Apprenticeship Positions at Temple-Wilton Farm (NH)

Temple-Wilton Community Farm was one of the two first CSA's in the United States. Most CSA’s are seasonal and most have a fixed price for a fixed ‘share in the harvest’. From the beginning we took a different direction. For one thing we had a herd of milking cows so we knew that our members would be coming to get milk throughout the year. Thus we decided to grow large quantities of storage vegetables in order to provide produce throughout the winter.

Apprenticeship Position at Tani Creek Farm (WA)

Tani Creek Farm is on a beautiful island in the Puget Sound that is still mostly forested and has very little farmland.  The farm uses only rainwater via ponds to irrigate, and solar power to run all electricity. We grow on a southwest facing slope, landscaped with swales and berms to catch all runoff water/irrigation. There is a unique and very diverse orchard.
