New Brunswick's Organic Farm Apprenticeship Program

The Falls Brook Centre in Knowlesville, NB is co-hosting the New Brunswick Organic Farm Apprenticeship Program. Taken from a press release:

Have you ever wanted to live the life of an organic farmer, but didn't know where to start? Are you an organic farmer with lots to work and experience to share, but no one to teach? Do you have questions about how to improve areas of organic farming, and ideas for on-farm experiments? If you answered "yes" to any of these questions, the Organic Farm Apprenticeship is for you.

Falls Brook Centre (FBC), the Organic Agriculture Centre of Canada (OACC), New Brunswick Department of Agriculture (NBDAFA), the Atlantic Canadian Organic Regional Network (ACORN) and New Brunswick Organic Farms have collaborated to design a program to build the Atlantic Canadian organic sector.
