Another inspiring young person is coming to South Whidbey to help grow food for our community and our children, and strengthen our island’s local food system!
A homestay is needed from March 15 – October 31 for a school garden apprentice who will be helping to offer garden-based curriculum in the schools, while growing produce for the cafeterias, for the students during the classes, and for Whidbey Island Nourishes and Good Cheer.
The Community Gardening Leadership Training is a program of the Whidbey Institute in collaboration with the South Whidbey School District and the Good Cheer Food Bank. This year four apprentices are coming and we need one more homestay!
You’ll receive fresh garden vegetables throughout the season, deep gratitude from our program and the satisfaction of knowing you’re helping to educate and nourish children, and support a future community gardening leader.
Please let us know if you can help!
