Ever dreamed about having your own farm, growing your own
food, knowing how to distinguish between weeds, or even just
working outside for a summer?
Consider making 2009 the year you realize your dream —
it’s not as difficult as you may think!
There are dozens of farms across Canada who are looking to
teach you these skills. For a commitment of 8 weeks or more,
a farm will provide you with room and board and an education
that you’ll use for the rest of your life.
From the bright Atlantic shores of the Maritimes to
Vancouver Island, you will find farms of every shape and
size. Some are small market gardens, others with sweeping
fields of grains. You’ll learn not only to grow food, but
drive a tractor, build a fence, update blogs, and some will
even teach you how to weld!
Many farms are also willing to accept couples too, so you
don’t have to make the choice of doing what you love without
the one you love 🙂
Take time to look through the many farm listings and dare to
dream about greener pastures — http://www.soilapprenticeships.org
