Calling on Ranchers in NM, CO and AZ!
Apply to be a mentor.NAP is growing! We are seeking applications from a handful of established ranchers and farmers interested in mentoring the next generation.
The New Agrarian Program (NAP) partners with skilled ranchers and farmers to offer apprenticeships in regenerative agriculture. Together, we create opportunities for comprehensive, full-immersion experiential learning from expert practitioners in authentic professional settings.
This program was designed to support the next generation of food producers and specifically targets first-career professionals with a sincere commitment to life at the intersection of conservation and regenerative agriculture.
NAP partners with full-time, established ranchers or farmers with a minimum of five years' experience. NAP mentors are dedicated land stewards. They practice intentional, regenerative methods that prioritize healthy soil, healthy food, and healthy communities. They maintain a culture, seasonal rhythms, and agricultural practices that provide a high quality of life for people and animals, while actively and intentionally regenerating soil, vegetation, and riparian areas, and protecting water quality.
In exchange for their labor, apprentices receive mentorship and professional instruction in all aspects of a resilient and regenerative agricultural operation.
Please send questions and inquiries to Virginie Pointeau, New Agrarian Program Director: VIrginie Pointeau. 505.820.2544, Ext. 5.
