Dirt Farm School is our non-profit educational program offering
farm apprenticeships. The program provides practical experience
for individuals who value common sense and introduces them to the
operations of an organic farm. The school's mission is to cultivate
organic farmers and eaters. The school was founded with the belief
that the elimination of deadly pesticides, herbicides, and chemical
fertilizers, along with the maintenance of healthy living soil and
the rebuilding of local communities, all play a major role in the
development of individuals whose thoughts, dreams and actions create
plant, grow, harvest, market, store and preserve wholesome food.
Learning to repair broken equipment, build a fence, mend clothes
on a treadle sewing machine and build a house or a barn are just
some of the new skills apprentices can acquire. The program is not
rigidly structured, and academics is not the primary focus of their
work. Apprentices actually live the reality of our farm by becoming
days are varied, active and pleasant, but each individual is
expected to take on new responsibilities and be willing to work
hard and long, possibly to get wet, hot or cold and dirty. It is
real work that needs to be done. It is not a vacation.
benefits received by the apprentices include training and experience
unattainable any other way, new friends, possibly academic credit
and incredible memories. Our beautiful rural setting with sweeping
mountain views provides an ideal environment for developing a lifestyle
in touch with the land. The lessons learned will last a lifetime.
