The Residential, Practicum Program
The 14 week Practicum Student Program is an intensive, adult, residential program which derives its uniqueness from its in-depth, holistic curriculum and the school’s surrounding farming community. Students cover the spectrum of sustainable agricultural theory (which is adaptive to individual interests), while living and working side-by-side with other farmers on a beautiful 5,000 acre working ranch in Mendocino County, California. All graduates leave with a top notch education, hands-on practical experience, a network of mentors and peers, and a sense of the nobility of this profession.
