AMI’s tuition-free Farm Fellowship is six-month program designed for individuals interested in rural agriculture and sustainable farming. Farm Fellows will:
- Live and work on a Certified Naturally Grown farm, study and practice cottage industry skills, and distribute fresh produce to a remote, but lively, Appalachian community.
- Build a wide variety of practical farming skills through hands-on farm time and experiential learning, complemented by weekly educational and skills development sessions.
- Learn and participate in food preservation, poultry care and processing, rotational grazing, mushroom cultivation, beekeeping, herbalism, fruit cultivation, and business skills
Educational scholarships to all selected Fellows includes a $1,700 monthly stipend, along with housing, farm-fresh vegetables and farm products, and a group pantry budget. Additional need-based scholarships are available for travel and gear expenses.
