2017 Local Food Supply Chain Apprentices

In Summer 2017, NC Growing Together hosted its third Summer Local Food Supply Chain Apprenticeship. More than eighty apprentices applied from all over the country and a wide variety of backgrounds. Sixteen apprentices were chosen to spend 8 weeks learning about all aspects of local food production, distribution, and consumption with NCGT partner organizations and businesses.

Learn more about the 2017 Local Food Supply Apprentices in the NCGT News and in Students in the Local Food Value Chain: Experiences from the 2017 NC Growing Together Summer Internship (.pdf), or read a little about where they’re from here.
