Community Gardening Leadership Training

We had a very successful 2012 season and are now seeking applicants for the Community Gardening Leadership Training apprenticeship next year! You can find more information and an application HERE.

  • The Good Cheer Food Bank, and the Learning from the Land program of the Whidbey Institute, are partnering to offer a 7 1/2-month training in community gardening and leadership skills, from mid-March 2013 – end-October 2013.
  • We are seeking two motivated individuals who wish to gain skills for future leadership positions in the field of sustainable community gardening. The training will combine hands-on, practical growing skills in small-scale food production with the leadership skills needed to initiate and manage community gardening projects, to coordinate volunteers, and to implement education and outreach programs.
