The Foundation for Agriculture and Rural Resources Management and Sustainability (FARRMS) will place interns at six ND farmers markets in 2020. FAARMS are currently taking applications from farmers markets who want to host an intern and from potential interns who want to serve a farmers market. Internships are 20 hours per week from June 7, 2020 to October 3, 2020. Interns receive a $160 weekly stipend and weekly training including orientation on May 30, 2020 in Tuttle, ND.
The agricultural degree partnership between Dakota College at Bottineau, Lake Region State College, and Williston State College, is finding success in their first year. This collaboration offers courses in Livestock Production, Crop Production, Agribusiness and Specialty Crop Production through delivery formats that include on-campus and distance education. With fall 2020 enrollment underway, interest is increasing with the programs on schedule to double in size.
