Permalink Ag Apprenticeship Toolkit Available

The Ag Apprenticeship Learning Network has released the Ag Apprenticeship Toolkit, a comprehensive guide to establishing or improving an agricultural apprenticeship on your farm or ranch. The resources include tools, suggestions, and external links to supplementary resources. The New Entry Sustainable Farming Project and five core partners—Dairy Grazing Apprenticeship, Maine Organic Farmers and Gardeners Association, Quivira Coalition, Rogue Farm Corps, and Vilicus Training Institute—have collaborated to create this toolkit. The toolkit will provide you with peer-reviewed guidance for starting an on-farm/ranch agricultural apprenticeship program, and is intended to serve as a resource guide that unites existing ag apprenticeship programs, shares best practices, and outlines the development and maintenance of a successful professional agricultural training program. The toolkit also seeks to coherently outline the state and federal Department of Labor laws surrounding on-farm apprenticeships and the standards that must be met in order to comply with these laws.The 94-page toolkit is available free online in PDF.
