Announcing 2010 Apprenticeship Program!

People who live in other neighborhoods often ask me if I plan on expanding, and can I come and garden in their neighborhood? I explain that expanding our little NSA (Neighborhood Supported Agriculture) to gardens throughout the city isn't really practical, and the answer isn't for me to become the McDonald's of front-yard gardens --- the answer is to encourage NSAs to start in each and every Denver neighborhood.

To that end, we've decided to start an Apprenticeship Program that would give new farmers the tools they need to start an NSA in their neighborhood.

We are now accepting applicants for our 2010 Apprenticeship Program. All applicants must work at least 3 garden shifts before the end of the 2009 season, so early application is critical. The program is designed to give hands-on experience with all of the aspects of running a successful NSA (Neighborhood Supported Agriculture) program.

For details on the program, time requirements, and benefits (including a free share of the veggies!) please visit our website. Please contact Sundari at info@eatwhereUlive.com if you have any questions.
