Start Farming, Start Ranching at the School of Adaptive Agriculture


The School of Adaptive Agriculture Practicum Program is for adults who have decided to enter the sustainable food system. You may not yet know what your role will be. But you want to be among the million new farmers, ranchers, and leaders this country needs in order to transform agriculture through creative, sustainable and profitable enterprises. Join us for a three-month intensive residential training program on a 5,000-acre working ranch in Mendocino County, California. Our program combines experiential learning with living and working side-by-side with farmers and ranchers. Classroom-based learning is designed to send students off with a comprehensive vocabulary, skill set, and understanding of the foundations of small scale agriculture. Weekly field trips contribute to a unique learning experience, giving students a well-rounded education that helps launch them into your career in the food system. Programs start in April and July.
