A chance to become a Norwich FarmShare apprentice

We're offering two fantastic chances to join the FarmShare growing team as an apprentice.

The two apprenticeships are voluntary and will last for 6 months, during that time the apprentices will work for 1.5 days a week on the farm (a day of which will be spent with the horticultural mentor), they will participate in a two day communications for community growers workshop, organise a volunteer workday, meet other similar groups from East Anglia and further afield, visit other enterprises, learn the basics of organic production (including protected cropping, crop rotation, weed control, crop/harvest planning, fertility building and more). In addition they will learn more about how community enterprises like Norwich FarmShare work and develop their skills in team-working and volunteer management. Both apprentices will have the option to attend an introduction to permaculture course and to choose a local enterprise they'd like to visit. There's more detail here on the FarmShare website.

It sounds pretty amazing!

Deadline for applications: Monday 25th June
Interview date: Wednesday 4th July (at Postwick)
Start date: Monday 16th July
