Deadline is next wed the 15th for the Spring term at Green String Farm in Petaluma, Ca.
Program is short at 3 mos ( mar-may) with options to stay on.
We practice natural process farming with a focus on soil mineral health and a touch of biodynamics. But beyond the trendy terms just do a quick search for Bob Cannard, advising farmer and main teacher of the program. Plenty of talks on youtube.
Program is at no cost to you in fact you receive a stipend. Sharing a house with a group of 12-15, most food included, 5 hours of work in the morning and 3 hours with Bob every weekday afternoon.
The program is new and growing with lots of potential. Our aim is inviting folks with little experience a chance to try out the realities of a typically dysfunctional farm and instill a level of confidence for you to go out and be leaders in your community. Calling for innovators and kind souls alike.

So much beyond farming and those looking to invest more time beyond the program have lots of flexibility and support in their exploration.
Besides a focus on a 50% for nature 50% for humans approach to farming, classes range from forest management to beekeeping to animal harvesting to holistic nutrition to wood shop and ironworks, amateur chemistry and physics, dowsing & winemaking.

Bobs approach to teaching is very personal, more like casual conversations and rants from for an old school practicality and sincere connection to the land and its energetic influences.

Please write me with any inquiries. The program runs 12 months a year, here is the website with downloadable application.
