program


The BINGN Apprenticeship Program provides a unique learning experience; giving the next generation the opportunity to grow and learn from established farmers and experts through a combination of long-term internships, seminars and mentorship. 


building a future for farming

Farms are closing at a worrying rate across Europe. While many young people are interested in farming, barriers such as access to land and pressure to produce more and more for less and less is threatening the future of small scale farming.
BINGN aims to create a different paradigm than the one which tells us that the future is industrial, genetically modified and uniform.

where we study

The BINGN Apprenticeship Program takes place in the Nordic of countries Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland, organised through the BINGN-Network. Throughout the apprenticeship program, students visit around 60 farms, gathering a broad range of impressions and knowledge.

curriculum

The BINGN Apprenticeship Program is undergoing some exciting changes and the curriculum will look a bit different in the coming year. We look forward to sharing more information with you in June 2022. Watch this space or contact us to find out more. 

The BINGN curriculum covers specific subjects such as soil science & soil cultivation, plant cultivation, animal husbandry, machinery, farm-economics, food processing, agricultural history & politics.

In biodynamic agriculture the farm is a living organism that is part of its surrounding and place as a whole. The curriculum therefore also contains holistic subjects such as astronomy, spiritual science, goetheanistic observation and arts.
