Permalink Farmer Training Program for Veterans Accepting Applications

The Take Root Program offered by Angelic Organics Learning Center is accepting applications from military veterans through December 1, 2017. Take Root is a program that connects veterans to paid employment and training on established farms in southern Wisconsin, northern Illinois, and the Chicagoland area. Selected trainees will work with Angelic Organics Learning Center staff to create an individualized education plan to better understand training needs and aid in pairing trainees with an appropriate trainer farm. Trainer farms will determine their trainee's hourly rate of pay, a wage which will be similar to that of other farm employees. In addition to being treated as regular employees, trainees will receive additional training or mentoring from trainer farmers throughout the season. Applicants should demonstrate a strong motivation to learn the business of sustainable farming.
