Earthwise Agassiz is looking for a few green thumbs.

The Earthwise Agassiz Farm Work and Learn volunteer program is open to agriculture fans of all ages. The program allows volunteers a variety of farming experiences on their small-scale organic learning farm, including seed starting, transplanting, soil preparation, maintaining crops and using watering systems.

Those who would like to learn a wide range of skills and are able to commit to a few hours per week can contact Earthwise Agassiz for more information on their Farm Work and Learn program, including dates and how to register, by emailing info@earthwisesociety.bc.ca or calling 604-946-9828.
