New Agrarian Apprentice Quivira Coalition

  • Date Posted November 07, 2018
  • Location Santa Fe, NM
  • Category Agriculture / Production
  • Job Type Internship/Apprentice
Company Description
The Quivira Coalition builds soil, biodiversity, and resilience on western working landscapes. We foster ecological, economic, and social health through education, innovation, and collaboration.
  • Our Land and Water program helps ranchers develop plans and management strategies for restoring and building resilience on slope wetlands, grasslands, and other working landscapes.
  • Our New Agrarian program helps to ensure that living and working knowledge of these practices, and the landscape itself, is stewarded into the future.
  • Our Education program, including our annual conference and open source publications, creates a space for our coalition to share ideas and resources, and for the general public to learn about the critical role working lands play in the health of our food systems, communities, and our planet.

The Quivira Coalition’s New Agrarian Program (NAP) partners with skilled ranchers and farmers to offer apprenticeships in regenerative agriculture. Together, we create opportunities for full-immersion learning from expert practitioners. This program is designed to support the next generation of food producers and targets those with a sincere commitment to life at the intersection of conservation and regenerative agriculture. NAP mentors are dedicated stewards of the land; they practice regenerative methods of food or fiber production, provide excellent animal care, and are skilled and enthusiastic teachers. 
Job Description

We have 12 apprenticeships available across New Mexico, Colorado, California, and Montana. 

These apprenticeships are full-time, intensive education & professional training opportunities, 50-60 hours a week, varying with the demands of season, weather, plant and animal needs. The New Agrarian Program seeks applicants committed to lives in regenerative agriculture, enough experience to know what it takes to work on the land, and an excellent work ethic. Applicants must be motivated self-starters, have the ability to work independently, be prepared to work long days outside in variable conditions; be solid problem solvers; and embrace diversity and teamwork. The selected applicants will be mature individuals, excited to engage in their own learning process. Apprentice education is divided into four categories: experiential learning, online classroom sessions, visits to other operations and the annual Quivira Conference.

Compensation includes a monthly stipend, housing, partial board, Holistic Management International beginning rancher/farmer trainings, and registration, travel and lodging for the Quivira Coalition conference and our apprentice orientation.
