The Summer Farm Intensive is aptly named as it is both intellectually and physically intense. We welcome all applicants who are ready to work and study hard, and are eager to immerse themselves in sustainable agriculture.
Non-traditional students are encouraged to apply as are degree-seeking college students. As you fill out the online application, please add any extra information you think is pertinent. The essay is most important in terms of helping us decide who would be the best fit for the program.

Students who participate in milking (generally expected, but not required) will receive up to 1/2 gallon of milk per week.
GMC students may qualify for federal financial aid for the summer semester. Institutional grants and scholarships are not available for the summer farm intensive. Contact the student financial services office for more information.
