My sister KK referred me to this: Full Belly Farm: Jobs and Apprenticeships. Where is Guinda, CA? It's not too far from Sacramento.

The rhythm of the farm varies with the seasons. From June through October, the days are very long, often with trucks to load after dark and many hours during the day spent packing tomatoes. This is not a job for someone who is uncomfortable around hard work! It gets hot here in the summer, but it is dry heat, and we can always cool down in the creek that runs along one border of the farm.

How much is the stipend?
Payment to apprentices includes room, board and a stipend.

The apprenticeship would involve moving to the area... I don't think I'd be willing to do that.
