About the Gathering

We are excited to bring together the Agriculture Apprenticeship Learning Network (AgALN) and celebrate the progress our partners have made over the past year. We’ll explore the challenges ahead and opportunities for expanded action, plus highlight efforts underway to strengthen Apprenticeship Training programs across the country. We are building new connections to empower programs and farm and ranch mentors to improve their practical training skills and enhance next generation farmer outcomes.

This year's gathering will be at Hotel Albuquerque as a pre-conference to the 2018 Regenerate Conference. We will be offering a farm tour, interactive sessions and workshops, and lots of opportunities to network and learn from organizations around the country.
