The SFC program is all full for 2018.  If interested in the 2019 program, you can submit an application anytime and we strongly recommend volunteering at the farm this season is possible.

The Sustainable Farming Certificate (SFC) is an intensive, curriculum based program designed to help participants looking to acquire comprehensive food growing skills and explore the world of sustainable local farming.

SFC students live and learn at Everdale’s organic farm in Hillsburgh, Ontario.

For those students wishing to experience a full season on the farm, the program runs for a total of 32 weeks (early April to late November).  Shorter options are available to fit your schedule, please contact the Farmer Training Coordinator to discuss your options.  If interested, please read the ‘full details’ package in the link below before filling out the application form.

Everdale is part of the CRAFT (collaborative regional alliance for farmer training) network in South West Ontario.  For more information on the network, click here.
