Now Hiring Apprentices for the 2016 Growing Season!

We are so excited to announce that applications are now open for the 2016 season of the Community Gardening Leadership Training! Click here to learn all about our program!

We are seeking four new apprentices to join our community food system on Whidbey Island next March. One apprentice will be centered at the Good Cheer Food Bank Garden and will help to grow many thousand pounds of food for underserved populations, manage their own satellite garden, lead large and diverse work parties and service learning groups, and help develop a new acre farm, another will be at the Whidbey Institute Westgarden and will engage in a diverse growing space and learn about garden leadership, and two others will be placed with the South Whidbey School District Farm and Garden Program where they will have the opportunity to grow food for the cafeterias and teach garden-based curriculum to over 600 students.

It is a very exciting time for our program; next year there is the possibility of expanding one of our growing sites considerably and incorporating more classes into the School Garden system. Please read more and consider applying!
