There are 40 women currently in residence at the Lighthouse LANDS Female Farming Apprentice Program. Our farming apprentice come from the various communities in and around the town of Jeremie. Each weekday morning, these women travel from their various communities to catch the Lighthouse LANDS transportation to our demonstration farm in Numero Deux. These women are hopeful, energetic and work hard daily to learn and apply a multitude of farming techniques, which will help them provide food for their families and their community.
The Lighthouse LANDS Female Farming Apprentice, range from 18 to 64 years old and the backgrounds of our female farmers is just as diverse as their age. We have a mother and daughter pair of apprentice, an avid seamstress as well as a few women who are educated that work along side women who have no formal education. Despite their difference our Female Farming apprentice have learned to work along of each other as a family.
