Rockport — Maine Coast Heritage Trust, a non-profit land conservation organization, is offering two paid farm apprenticeships at Aldermere Farm and Erickson Fields, in Rockport. Each apprenticeship will be up to nine months, starting in March, and will include a monthly stipend, benefits, shared housing, training and supervision.

During their time at the farms, apprentices engage with the community through educational agricultural programs, which teach about the local food system—food production, processing, distribution, consumption and waste management-- through the lens of environmental conservation and community well-being.

Applicants may apply at www.MOFGA.org. Applications are due Feb. 5.

FMI, contact the Aldermere Farm office at jalbury@mcht.org or 207-236-2739.
