Since growing food in Southern Mississippi is possible year round, our apprentice program is flexible and easy to access at most any time of the year. Both long-term and short-term apprentices are welcome to participate according to their needs and travel plans. We also host apprentices in the form of WWOOFers and have a profile on WWOOF-USA.
If you really want to see organic farming and gardening in the raw, join us in January as we build momentum for Spring planting, but late August is equally ideal. The summer heat subsides and the gorgeous Fall weather and ideal growing conditions make you wonder how people tolerate living in the frozen North.Some apprentices join us for weekend excursions and others spend three months of more. We’re happy to have the help and glad to extend our hospitality to you. Compensation is room and board and the joy of becoming part of an ecologically sensible and culturally vibrant food system
