The farm is a student-led initiative but we need additional assistance. Admittedly none of us are farmers, but we are eager to learn all that we can. We are currently exploring the idea of hiring a mentor farmer, ideally with the qualifications listed below:
- Several years experience with small farms.
- Experience growing organically and/or a specialization in winter growing.
- Desire to work with students.
- Interest in agricultural education.
- Working with students on pest and nutrient management using organic practices.
- Coaching on best management practices.
- Assistance with land preparation.
