I'm not sure an "apprenticeship" is what I'm looking for, but I'm happy to fill this out anyway.

I can't remember where I heard about the program, other than "somewhere on the internet a while back."
I'll be able to visit/volunteer/apprentice during this winter, I'll be rather busy all summer and fall.

I've lived with new and unknown people in urban settings several times, I anticipate I will be just as or more able to do so in a rural area.
Can I pay for food? Most likely, the big issue would be transportation. Is there a grocery store within 20 miles?
Will I be able to visit... before I visit? Sure, I can visit twice.
I do not smoke.
I will eat nearly anything.
Including and especially your farm's meat.
My primary form of transportation is a mid 70s-vintage Schwinn LeTour. The farthest we've ever traveled together was Chicago to Pittsburgh.
Resources to support myself... What will I need? Are you talking about money, or shelter/tools? In any case I will have them.
Medical/emotional/psychological issues... I tend to sleep about 10-12 hours a day in the winter, when I will be most able to visit. Other than that no.
Homebrewing, Bicycles, Linux
Three interesting things
three things folk oughta know
Other farms? As I said, I'm actively involved with Landslide Community Farm.
Rough accomodations do not worry me.
