Are you interested in learning outside of that 4-walled 
classroom? It is time for a different kind of education? 

Come to the East Coast of Canada where your classrooms 
are the organic farms, the teachers are the farmers, 
and the student is you.

This innovative apprenticeship program pairs folks 
interested in learning about organic agriculture with 
the people that are farming now. 

Live the life of an organic farmer, learning as you work 
daily in the fields, manage a small on-farm research 
project, visit other organic farms, meet the community, 
and broaden your skills in organic ag techniques. 

Apprentices receive college credit for their 
participation, with NO tuition fees! 

There is no age limit/requirement, and apprentices 
need not be current students to participate.

Learn more by visiting the website: 

Applications available on-line.

The NB Organic Farm Apprenticeship Program is 
the collaborative effort of:
- 10 NB organic farms
- Falls Brook Centre
- NB Community College - Grand Falls
- Organic Agriculture Centre of Canada
- NB Department of Agriculture
- Atlantic Canadian Organic Regional Network
- Canadian Organic Growers - NB Chapter
- NB Agricultural Council
