I am looking for internship or mentorship opportunities in agriculture specifically. Is anyone out there aware of programs that offer training or mentorship to beginning farmers or horticulturalists?


Robert Wining Oakland, CA

I am currently working on a degree in soil science at UT - Knoxville. I have found that internship and mentorship programs are prevalent in almost every industry. However, finding programs that offer the services I am looking for are few and far between.
