Common Thread CSA has openings for three full season apprentices in 2013.  Common Thread grows vegetables using organic methods on 16 acres in Madison, NY for both on site and off site CSA members and two farmers markets.  We have been training apprentices for ten years now and consider training future farmers to be one of the most rewarding things that we do. The apprenticeship starts in March or April and runs through October or mid-November.  Our positions are geared towards individuals who may one day wish to manage a farm or start their own farm.  The apprenticeship includes training, produce, and $340/week.  We have on site housing for rent for one or two apprentices and can also help apprentices locate other housing options in the community.  For more information, please see our website,www.commonthreadcsa.com and contact Wendy at info@commonthreadcsa.com or                         315-882-0086            .
