Farm Apprentice Mentoring Program 2019-2020

Join a six-month, 10-module program to gain
knowledge and hands-practice through
instruction and on-farm mentoring
demonstrations for beginning farmers to operate
a farm using regenerative agricultural practices.

The program begins with applicant interviews in October-November 2019, and orientation meetings in December 2019. The program courses and on-farm mentor meetings will be scheduled from January-June 2020.

Applicants must attend and participate in a
minimum of 70% of all class and lab sessions
for each course on the Course list, and achieve
100% of completion requirements through
submission and presentation of a final project.

The certificate courses meet the instructional
class requirements for the 176-hour Farm
Apprentice Mentoring (FAM) program
coordinated by the Hawai‘i Farmers Union
United (HFUU) – Maui Chapter, and
co-sponsored by the County of Maui.

To learn more, please contact Program Director Dr. Phyllis Robinson,

You are also invited to attend the Are You Ready to be a Farmer? Orientation at UH Maui College, Paina Cafeteria, October 9, 5:30-8:30pm.
