Mar. 25, 2014, Edmonton, AB - Alberta Agriculture and Rural Development's (AARD) Summer Farm Employment Program is now under way. This program gives Alberta's youth the opportunity to gain farm work experience and provides wage support to farmers for the months of July and August.
Employers must own or rent a farming operation in Alberta with gross production of $25,000 per year, and work must be directly related to the farming operation. Employers must recruit their own employee, provide daily supervision and ensure safe working conditions for their employee.
The deadline for applying is May 31, 2014, and signatures of both employee and employer must be included. Application forms and detailed information are available on AARD's website.
