The Lansing Urban Farm Project (LUFP) will accept four Apprentices at
Urbandale Farm in the 700 block of S. Hayford. Apprentices will learn how to start
and run an urban farm and will acquire hands-on experience in growing and marketing
produce. Apprentice graduates interested in starting their own urban farm will be assisted
in finding land and planning for their first year.
• Apprenticeships run from April 30 through November 1, about 20 hours/week, and
include a mix of instruction, farm work, market experience, and field trips.
• Apprentices receive a stipend of $4000 over the course of the program.
• Apprenticeships are open to all Lansing residents, but we especially encourage
applicants who are young adults (18-25) and who live in the Urbandale Farm service
neighborhood (bordered by 496, Clemens, Kalamazoo, and 127).
• There will be an information session about the apprenticeships hosted at Foster
Community Center, 200 N. Foster, Room 109, on Thursday, March 14, at 7PM. Attendance is strongly encouraged for those interested in the program!
Applications are due by 5PM on Tuesday, March 26.
Please call 517-999-3916 for more information.
