Does SAVE provide housing?

Is transportation available?
Due to the nature of this unique training program, our farm is located about fifteen miles from where classes are taught. It is the student's responsibility to get themselves to class. If you lack transport, SAVE might be able to offer assistance.
What classes are taught in summer?
The spring and fall term subjects focus on tasks that are needed to be done on a typical farm during that season.
Beekeeping courses are available all year.
Welding, mechanical, and woodworking are available in partnering with MATC.
I thought classes were at the farm?
Hands-on training is at the farm. All other classes are taught in a traditional classroom environment.
Typically, students spend the morning in the classroom and the afternoon at the farm.
Do you help find and put base inexpensive land for students?
No, we are setup to provide AG training as well as linking students, interns, and volunteers with successful producers. The relationships may or may not lead to land acquisition.
Do you have team members looking for work in AG?
We nearly always have volunteers and students looking for work in the field. Send us an email to define what you're looking for; we'll do our best to link you up with your ideal employee.
