This support is in addition to what staff and volunteer build crews already provide. Schedule would be totally variable depending on what needs arise. Mentors can set their own schedule.

Help provide students with hands-on gardening opportunities, and share your knowledge, skills and passion for growing food with Nevada County K-8 students!
