(Forward from Summer Miles)

Kahumana Organic Farm is looking for one more apprentice immediately and one more in September. I’m hoping to fill more of my apprenticeship spots with people from the community as we expand our farming operation. My main criteria is a willingness to learn and be in agriculture and also that they are willing to do the work. Any experience is beneficial but not required, thats our job : ) As for age, we usually are looking for people 21+ but we make exceptions. Let me know if you have any questions,
Aloha,
