Gaining work experience
It’s highly recommended that you work on an organic farm during the course; however, it’s not a requirement.
Working while participating in the Future Growers programme provides the added benefit of learning through doing.
It will enable you to critically appraise what you see and learn on the field trips, compare and contrast with what happens on your own host farm, and consider how and when to apply alternative techniques. You will also able to share their own work experiences with the group, and therefore learn from each other as well as the farms and seminars you visit.
Jobs on organic farms are advertised on our Organic Marketplace. Just search for Employment and Opportunities.
