It’s already that time of year again where we start planning for next year, update our job descriptions, and put the word out to find our next crew of apprentices! If you are interested in becoming an apprentice with us in 2017 please read more about the program here.
Our program, now called Grow Whidbey, has shifted a bit (which you can read more about here) and we’re excited to create a more focused collaboration between the Good Cheer Food Bank and the South Whidbey School District Farm and Garden Program. There will be three apprentice positions in 2017 split between the two programs. We are seeking a Good Cheer Apprentice who will focus on food production and farm cultivation in the food banks’ two gardens and new acre farm, and a School Farm/Garden Curriculum Apprentice who will work with teaching staff at the school farm to bring garden-based education to elementary and middle school students. The third position is the School Farm/Garden Production Apprentice which has already been filled for the season.
Please explore out website to learn more about our program and feel free to contact us with any questions you might have!
