Farm Apprentice Program In Full Swing!

Working Hard

One of the opportunities that Yummy Tummy Farms seeks to provide the community is as a school that offers organic and bio-dynamic farming and/or gardening classes; however, I do not want to exclude anyone that truly wants to learn. I have been approached in the past about people that really want to learn, but cannot afford the tuition. This conundrum was easily solved by looking into the past to find working models already in place as designed and implemented by our Ancestors. Our Ancestors already figured out a solution to this problem identified as the Journeyman and Apprentice model for teaching and learning. Simply put, for an equitable exchange of some volunteer labor, a Journeyman or Journeywoman would take an apprentice on as a student and teach them in an organized manner thus developing them and educating them tuition free. I like the spirit of this model because I feel like it honors labor, goodwill, and furthers the goals of Yummy Tummy Farms and those goals are to increase suburban farming, self-sustainability, and to reclaiming domesticity. Special thanks to Celia, Jessica, Kristil and Darren!

  1. This sounds lovely. Are you still offering apprenticeships? I would love to learn some urban farming skills in exchange for labor.

    • Hi Leanne:
      Great! Do you live in the SF Bay Area near San Jose? If so, yes, I do have openings on Monday and Tuesday evenings, will either of those nights work? I can make, with a bit of difficulty, other evenings or weekends work too, but Monday and Tuesday evenings currently have vacancies.

      Best,
