Many farms are interested in learning how to host interns and apprentices, or would like to enhance/update their existing farm internship or apprenticeship. This webinar will review the basics, including how to make the experience a good one for you and your interns or apprentices, and common policies and practices on the farm. The webinar will also delineate legal considerations that farmers must be aware of for their apprenticeship or internship program, and provide resources for further information on farm internships and apprenticeships.
