New Agrarian Program 101
Join us for one of our informational calls to learn more about applying to become an agrarian apprentice!
Call times and dates:
Are you considering applying for a 2021 apprenticeship with the Quivira Coalition’s New Agrarian Program? Join one of our upcoming informational calls to learn more about the program and decide if an apprenticeship might be the right next step for you in your agricultural career!
During the calls we’ll discuss what to expect from an agricultural apprenticeship on a working ranch or farm in New Mexico, Colorado, Montana and California. The calls will be hosted by our New Agrarian Program coordinators, and will provide an overview of our program and each of our mentor ranches and farms, and help you decide what kind of operation might be the right fit for you as you explore agriculture as a lifestyle and a livelihood. Our goal is to help participants determine which sites to apply to based on what they’re hoping to get out of their apprenticeship.
These calls are free and open to anyone interested in learning more about our program. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like any additional information. We will record the workshops and send the recording to anyone who registers.
