GrowSureEase will provide training through hands-on participation and lessons in agriculture. No prior farm experience or knowledge is necessary, only a desire to learn. We are willing to work with you and the university to make it feasible to receive credit for this experience (possibly through combining work with a report on an organic farming or greenhouse technique). Housing is available as well as produce.
This is an unpaid position.
