SEEDS has management responsibility for 5 acres of farmable land. Last growing season, we established a one acre area for growing, complete with fencing and irrigation. Of this, a half acre was planted with a mixture of vegetables and cover crops.
This year the goal is to expand cultivation to the full acre and begin planting perennials such as asparagus, berries, fruit and nuts. We also hope to have a hoop house by June.
● With the fulfillment of 300 hours of work, SEEDS can offer a $1132.28 Americorps education award good toward tuition and loan expenses.
● A successful farmer can earn a portion of the proceeds from the sale of farm produce.
● SEEDS will provide weekly crews of high school student labor as a part of our Youth Conservation Corps program.
● Additional paid work opportunities working with our Youth Conservation Corps improving trails and removing invasive species on parklands, including an opportunity to build a boardwalk on South Manitou Island through the largest old growth cedars in the State!
