Community Farm and Garden Coordinators

The Mountain Roots Healthy Futures Program builds community food security by creating synergies among education initiatives, nutrition and food access programs, public health and human services, and agricultural/conservation programs. Community-driven initiatives in the Healthy Futures Program include Farm to School, Sustainable Agriculture & Community Gardens, Hunger Solutions (Food Security), and Public Health programs, working together to build and sustain healthy communities, healthy people, and a healthy environment.Healthy Futures Farm & Gardens members practice the basics of small-scale organic production growing and actively lead community engagement, mentoring, and outreach for community gardens and community farms over the course of a full growing season. Some placements involve establishing new community gardens, revitalizing old ones, or working with neighborhood /backyard gardens. Other placements emphasize large-scale organic crop production. Some sites may also include animal husbandry, perennials and medicinal, the making of value-added products, bringing goods to market or CSA, etc. Farm & Gardens Members receive hands-on training and will take part in every aspect of caring for production gardens throughout the growing season, including site planning, cultivating seedling starts, soil science, extending the season with greenhouses and cold frames, seed saving, irrigation and water management, land access and zoning codes, and more. All sites maintain high standards, employ organic and regenerative practices, and have a high level of community engagement.

Don't Be Fooled

The fraudster will send a check to the victim who has accepted a job. The check can be for multiple reasons such as signing bonus, supplies, etc. The victim will be instructed to deposit the check and use the money for any of these reasons and then instructed to send the remaining funds to the fraudster. The check will bounce and the victim is left responsible.
