Are there times that are better for you to provide mentorship?
Wed, 9-1 is our volunteer day. Working with us is a good way to learn. While we would not charge financially for our mentorship, there is an expectation of labor exchange and much of the knowledge transfer would happen while working. We would work with beginning farmer to set up a schedule that would work for both of us.
