With the weather starting to get warmer, we're looking forward to the upcoming garden season. Are you interested in joining our team of garden mentors for the 2020 season?

A mentor is someone who shares the responsibility of facilitating our work bees. We would like mentors who are able to commit to at least 2 hours of mentorship per week. Mentors do not have to be farming gurus, you just need to be willing to learn, enthusiastic about sustainability, and enjoy engaging with a wide diversity of people!

Those mentors who feel less confident in their farming knowledge will be paired with another mentor, provided with plenty of instruction, and/or asked to lead work bee tasks that are less knowledge-intensive.

Our regular work bee sessions are Tuesday and Thursday evenings from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm, and Saturday 1 pm  to 5 pm. Some mentors have also taken the initiative to lead a morning/midday session as well.

If you are interested, please email Debra ddavidson@ualberta.ca. Anyone who is particularly excited about being involved in our weekly market should let her know in your email. There will be a meeting of everyone interested in mentoring in March.
