The Collaborative Regional Alliance for Farmer Training (CRAFT) seeks to educate farm workers who are interested in becoming farmers themselves by providing a diversity of on-farm educational experiences throughout the season.
CRAFT gatherings are held monthly from May – October on participating farms in Rutland and Bennington Counties. Each FREE gathering includes a farm tour, workshop, and potluck dinner. Participants learn about a diversity of farm topics and farm systems, have the opportunity to network with other apprentices, interns, and farm workers in the region, and meet other CRAFT farmers. In addition, all participants receive a resource manual with in-depth information on each topic and Vermont’s network of new farmer services.
