LUFP Seeks Four Apprentices for the 2014 Season!

Looking for an opportunity to learn how to start an urban farm, grow fresh produce, and gain marketing experience?  Enjoy working with others, getting involved in your community, and being outdoors?  Consider an apprenticeship with the Lansing Urban Farm Project (LUFP) at Urbandale Farm!

LUFP is the non-profit organization that operates Urbandale Farm.  Its mission is to produce fresh, affordable produce and to develop community-building programs, all in a sustainable way.  Find us online at:  LUFP is seeking four apprentices for the 2014 season!

• Apprentices receive a stipend of $4000 over the course of the program.

• Apprenticeships are open to all Lansing residents, and we especially encourage applications from those who live in the Urbandale Farm service neighborhood (bordered by 496, Clemens, Kalamazoo, and 127).
