Program: Regenerative Farm – seeking apprentices
Type: apprenticeship program with food & accom
Dates: May 1 – Aug 1 and/or Aug 8 – Oct 8 (see below)

Farm: Twisted Roots Farm
Location: Judique, Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia (with food and accommodation, see below)

Twisted Roots Farm is now accepting applications for our 2021 apprenticeship program. Dive into the depths of farming, permaculture, building, forestry, community living, off-grid living, outdoor education, and nature-based dialogue.

Many hands have helped us, and many projects have been completed by those who have found their way to the farm. What has and is emerging is a place where we are exploring and experiencing the creation of a permaculture demonstration site.

An apprenticeship with Twisted Roots Farm is one of creative design, bold ideas, and unique vision. You will be challenged, you will be asked to work hard, and you will be part of something truly unique.

Opportunities for learning for the 2021 season include:

  • Permaculture design, mapping, and guild planting
  • Creating forage areas for livestock
  • Developing closed-loop feeding systems
  • Expansion of market gardens
  • Development of four season market garden harvest
  • Natural building projects
  • Bandsaw milling and creating secondary wood products
  • Research projects

In exchange for your energy, we offer accommodation, meals, experiential learning opportunities, and mentorship.

We will work with you one-on-one, help guide your time on the farm, and reflect important experiences. This is an immersion program, experiential in nature, and our classroom is the land and farm that surrounds us.

What we are offering for this season is a three-month or six-month apprenticeship.

Cohort 1: May 1 – August 1
Cohort 2: August 8 – October 8

A six-month apprenticeship would span both cohort time frames with a break from August 2 to August 7.

We will only be seeking two apprentices for the season in each cohort, which may vary depending on interest in the 6-month apprenticeship.

This could also be open to a couple who are considering the program in either the three-month or six-month format.
