Farming is rewarding work. Full-time farmers, volunteers, permactulture designers and gardners are always in high demand.
Here are some resources on finding help for urban agriculture projects in Long Beach:
“Job Readiness Program” connects young people in our community with work-experience opportunities like your project.
This program intensively trains community-minded gardeners and then requires them to provide substantial annual volunteer hours to projects like yours.
They can consult and help you design a “work-party” or “work-hours” volunteer program for project management.
They offer a variety of programs that can help develop, train and even help pay to develop a viable workforce for you.
