Sonya has recently been accepted into the MOFGA Journeyperson Program! The program is focused on providing support and resources to young farmers with some apprenticeship experience under their belts and who have either recently launched their own farms or who wish to do so in the near future. Sonya will have a mentor she can go to for questions and guidance and will have access to a variety of classes, workshops, and conferences through MOFGA over the next couple of years. This is a great learning opportunity for her, and we’re both very excited! Her photo and profile, along with those of the other folks participating in the program, can be viewed here in the very near future (I think the list will be updated for 2010 in the next week or two.)
Also, don’t forget about our next potluck, this Friday, March 26th from 5-9 PM. Bring a dish to share! Friday’s forecast is looking clear but cool, so we’ll probably eat indoors. If there’s interest, though, we may still get a bonfire going.
