Student Farmers Hired

Photo: 2016 Student FarmersSincerey Shoemaker and Darby Lahaug are student farmers who will be working in the garden this summer until school starts again in the fall. The two positions are responsible for weeding, watering, and harvesting. The produce will be sold at farmers markets and will help support the garden. The purpose of these positions is to help make the garden manageable and successful.

“I am overjoyed to be able to be given the opportunity to work in our school garden. I think that this will be a great experience that I will benefit from in the near future,” says Darby.

The two student farmer positions are funded through the Specialty Crops Block Grant from the Oregon Department of Agriculture.
