People looking for training centres
Seeking Biodynamic farm apprentice
Camphill Community Ballybay (a rural life-sharing Community with people with special needs) is currently looking for a Biodynamic Farm apprentice starting from anytime now onwards. Our 20ha farm of mixed dairy and beef is the ideal space for someone wanting to engage into the practical based Biodynamic apprenticeship scheme which is run by the Biodynamic Agricultural Association in UK and accredited by Crossfield Institute. Although some experience with farming would be helpful it is as such not generally required. Ideally the apprentice would live in one of our community households as a co-worker. For people interested or any other inquiries please contact us.
BD FARM APPRENTICE POSITION
I'm looking to start an apprenticeship this year.
I've been working on and off on organic farms for 3 years, for the most part as a volunteer but last year as a paid seasonal worker. I first experienced Biodynamics whilst WWOOFing on an Anthroposophic estate in Holland where I work with the Biodynamic dairy and market garden, and it was from there I got first hand exposure to the ideas, practices and people involved. The experiences stayed with me ever since and lead me to seek training in Biodynamics.
My main area of interest is horticulture though I am comfortable with helping with animals if needed. I'd like to find a training centre that can offer further experience with vegetable, herb and flower growing, I'm open to different social situations though I think working in a community would suit me best.
