We’re excited to share the experience with people who are really interested in learning about growing food for a small community. Farm crew will have the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of a high elevation, small market garden operation. Responsibilities include plant propagation, bed preparation, seeding, transplanting, weed management, fertility management, irrigation, harvesting and marketing.
