Sponsor a Student

Is there an aspiring farmer in your grange? Send an aspiring farmer to Farm School. Granges are encouraged to help out by sponsoring a local students.  When this student returns to their home Grange they can pass on all they have learned, start a farm, and increase food security in your community. Practicum Student spaces are open for early 2015. Tuition for 2014 is $300.  Residential students, starting in April 2015, pay $2,500 tuition and fees, plus $6,000 for room and board for the full seven-month program.

Volunteer

There are many wonderful ways to get involved with the Grange Farm School. We are always in need of creative and hardworking individuals, find a way to fit in today!

Community members are encouraged to come work alongside the students and faculty as we chip away at projects around the farm. Every Wednesday from 10-5 we host a volunteer open house day where we offer a wide variety of projects to volunteers who want to get their hands dirty with crops, livestock, and building projects. At least twice a month we will host an open house day on Saturday. Check our calendar for dates.
