Apprenticeships, Practicum Placements, ESL students
For many years, Haliburton has trained young farmers and offered opportunities for schools and language students to learn more about farming by coming to the farm to study with the farmers.
Our new Haliburton EcoFarm School has replaced our usual program of farm-wide organic farming apprenticeships for 2017. Please visit the school’s web page, or contact the EcoFarm School for more information.
Please Contact Haliburton Farm about other placements in the diverse educational events and programs that take place at the farm.
Education and community involvement are central components of the Society’s plan for Haliburton Farm. The farm hosts occasional workshops for organic farmers, gardeners, and consumers. We work collaboratively with local schools, colleges and universities to provide hands-on learning in organic growing. The Society also has a classroom space for educational activities. Check our blog, Twitter or Facebook pages for information about upcoming events and workshops. There is always something happening at Haliburton Farm.
