Pilot Program

Oct 23, 2017

SGN is proud to report that its summer School Garden Apprenticeship pilot program was a huge success!

 Thanks to our great partnership with Harmony Farm Supply, SGN trained and hired 8 Sonoma County high school teenagers to install automated drip irrigation systems in 7 SGN affiliate school gardens who received aWater Wise Mini-grant. The teens also helped with general garden maintenance in 5 additional gardens, with tasks such as sheet mulching, building worm bins, weeding and planting heirlooms beans.

Special thanks to volunteer and Master Gardener Steve Ehrmann for taking the lead on designing the irrigation systems and for his many hours of hard work and dedication to seeing these installations through!

SGN intends to offer these great programs again, so stay tuned for more information about how to participate. Questions and comments? Contact Sue Davis schoolgardenapprenticeship@gmail.com.
