This a training program, not a volunteer program. Maintaining a highly diverse and intricately balanced farm such as ours requires a vast array of skills. It's not rocket science, but it's just as complicated. Trainees must first understand that they are receiving training that is becoming more and more valuable in a society that lacks these skills and understandings.
- Financial Contribution. We require trainees to contribute financially to our work in whatever capacity they can. Trainees must donate $20, $50, $75, or $100 per month, corresponding with their financial capacity.
- A regular weekly commitment of attendance. Trainees must show up on the same day(s) every week from 9am to 2pm, and let us know if they are unable to attend.
- Tools. Every trainee must provide their own hand pruners. Hand pruners are available to purchase from our store.
