Calling all green thumbs...

La Mesa Verde is actively recruiting experienced gardeners to mentor San Jose families who are growing backyard gardens. Gardening mentors ensure that new families have successful gardens with bountiful harvests by providing guidance and encouragement. Mentors commit to visiting their families at least once per month between April and October and attending Mentorship Committee meetings intermittently. We invite YOU to share your gardening knowledge and become part our network of urban gardeners committed to improving local access to healthy food. We especially seek mentors who are bilingual in Spanish and English, but English-speakers are welcome, too. Contact Tori Truscheit to sign up today!
