Calling all farm interns, apprentices, students of agriculture!

Ever wish you had an opportunity which would fill the gap between coursework and internships and the experience of independently owning a farm? The Institute for Sustainable Living, Art & Natural Design is forming a farmer residency program which gives journeyman farmers access to the technical, managerial, and practical experience necessary to operate and own an independent farm.

We value input from beginning farmers, farm interns, apprentices, students--anyone who might benefit from a program like this. Please take a few moments to complete this needs assessment survey based on what you would like to see from a farmer residency program in northwest lower Michigan.
