NH Institute of Agriculture and Forestry Opens Educational Opportunities

By Helen Brody (January 11, 2012)

The New Hampshire Institute of Agriculture and Forestry (NHIAF) has announced the opening of its 2012 rolling acceptance of applications for:

1. Internships (typically college or high school students desiring agriculture experience; includes cultivation/husbandry and marketing/sales/logistics)
2. Apprenticeships (growers with some cultivation/business experience; aspiring, yet not quite ready for independent farm ownership)
3. Farm/forestry incubator residencies we call “farmerships” and “foresterships” (somewhat experienced professionals who lack land/capital and desire commercial farm and forestry ownership)
4. Beginner farmers, foresters, and food artisans (new farmers/foresters with land and food producers who need business and cultivation coaching/development/support)
5. Mentor farmers and foresters (experienced organic/biodynamic and sustainable agricultural/forestry/food professionals to support and train new farmers; compensation arrangements available)
6. Land owners with underutilized farm and forest land who would like to see their property placed in sustainable production.
