Education & Training

Experience

The farm is 12 minutes north of Middlebury, so you would need a car. The ideal candidate would have experience either working with the elderly (could be your own family members) or have taken a volunteer orientation or class. This is a HomeShare VT opportunity so applications would go through them.
