Work alongside GoFarm staff and inters to turn the dream of a Farmer Training Center into a reality! We are preparing a 2-acre plot of land in Arvada, Colorado for future farmers and growing a few crops to distribute through our Local Food Share program and Mobile Farmers Market. Tasks include pulling up plastic mulch left by a former farm, weeding, mulching, and planting crops including carrots, squash, and beans.
