Rogue Farm Corps farmer training programs 2019

Applications are open with no fee through January 15th, 2019 for Rogue Farm Corps’ farmer training programs for seasonal positions in 2019 on diverse, sustainable host farms in 4 chapter locations in Oregon. A $15 application fee starts January 16th through the end of the application period on March 15th, 2019. Please see attached flyer (good for printing or emailing) and program descriptions below.

Rogue Farm Corps Internship Program is a full season entry-level residential internship that combines hands-on training and skills-based education in sustainable agriculture.

Participants live and learn on a host farm, receiving up to 1,500 hours of on-farm training and learning in-depth skills from their mentor farmer over the course of a farming season. The hands-on, residential training experience is combined with farm tours, classes, and discussion circles throughout the region, as well as an independent study project, and access to lots of resources for further learning. Interns are exposed to a vast array of knowledge and expertise by engaging in the daily life of vibrant, agricultural communities.

The Apprenticeship Program is an advanced program for those with farming experience who are seeking mastery in the art and business of sustainable agriculture. Hands-on training, classes, weekend workshops around the state, an independent study project, and guidance in farm business development will allow participants to gain the skills to plan, design, and run integrated farming systems on their own.

This full-immersion program is designed for those who have completed an internship program with RFC or a similar organization, or have two years of on-farm experience. Apprentices live and learn on a host farm, receive up to two seasons of on-farm training, and learn in-depth skills from their mentor farmer. The rotating two-year curriculum focuses on advanced farming techniques and business planning and management.

Rogue Farm Corps is the only organization in Oregon that offers structured, entry-level and advanced farmer education and training programs rooted in real-world farm businesses. We work with host farms located in the Rogue Valley, the Portland Metro Area, the South Willamette Valley, and Central Oregon and offer experiences with vegetable production, animal husbandry, dairy, mixed operations, and more. For complete program descriptions, host farm profiles, and applications visit

Rogue Farm Corps is committed to an ongoing learning process around privilege, power, inequality and systems of oppression. RFC has a goal of making our programs welcoming to, inclusive of, and accessible to communities who are under-represented as farm operators in Oregon, including women, people of color, LGBTQ individuals, low-income individuals and immigrants. Our desire to create a more equitable food system will be reflected in RFC’s programs and collaborations.
Applications for RFC program scholarships will be available on our website in early – mid January.

UW Democracy through Dialogue: Deep-Dive Dialogue Series

The Deep-Dive Dialogue Series is an opportunity for twelve UW undergraduates of different backgrounds and perspectives to have ongoing (5-session) dialogue about an issue they all care about. Like our one-time dialogues, students will practice the skills necessary to interact constructively across difference; experience personal growth; and hold divergent perspectives before engaging with resolution.

Within the extended time-frame, we hope students will:

  • Learn about one another’s lived experiences
  • Come to understand one another’s motivations, concerns, and hopes
  • Wrestle with challenging questions, points of disagreement, and competing priorities
  • Map a co-created understanding of the topic and avenues for change

  • Between March 11th and April 8th, there will likely be another meeting/outing that your group does together at a time convenient for you and without the facilitators.

The application has yet to go up, but we will be including a section prior to January 1st in which early applicants can vote for various topics they personally would like to focus on!

Space is limited to only 12 students. As always, our goal will be to comprise a group of students whose perspectives and backgrounds reflect many walks of life, but who have interest in the same issue/topic. Please know that if you are not invited to this series simply because of the need to balance the group, there will be other ways to stay involved!

Stefansson Memorial Lecture: Learning From the Northern Peoples

We are pleased to invite you to the Stefansson Memorial Lecture: “Learning From The Northern Peoples” by Prof. Leslie King.

Arctic explorers sometimes credited their survival and exploration successes to the knowledge they gained from Indigenous people during their explorations in dangerous times in harsh but fragile environments. More often, the knoweldge of indigenous people has been overlooked. One hundred years later, researchers working in the North have often made the same mistakes by discounting Indigenous and local knowledge. Climate researchers are modern explorers attempting to learn from the knowledge, ancient and contemporary, held by Northern people which may yet ensure our survival. This Stefansson Memorial Lecture will introduce some of the emerging findings from that research that may help those of us in lower latitudes to prepare for, respond to and survive dramatic changes in the social-ecological systems upon which we depend.

Leslie King is Professor of Environment and Sustainability at Royal Roads University in Canada. She holds degrees from the University of British Columbia, York University, University of Toronto and the London School of Economics.

When: Wed. 12/5, 3:30PM
Where: CMU 120
Reception to follow in CMU 202

Lecture sponsors: UW Scandinavian Studies; Stefansson Institute for Arctic Studies, Akureyri, Iceland; UW Canadian Studies — Arctic Studies and Intl Relations, Henry M. Jackson School of International Studies; UW Future of Ice Initiative; Institute for Arctic Studies – Dickey Center – Dartmouth College
