URBAVORE is seeking the hardworking hands of one more badass individual to grow the good food movement in KC's urban core. Our hiring process is off to a good start. We have one full-time apprentice on board, as well as several volunteer apprentices, and a handful of casual volunteers. But I'm looking for that last missing piece. You might be it!
Our full-time apprenticeship is not for the faint of heart. It involves a strong desire to unplug, get your ass kicked, and throw yourself full force into the beautiful and challenging world of regenerative agriculture. This intense hands-on position is best suited for individuals looking to start their own commercial farm one day, and it is particularly relevant to those who think "outside the box" and would like to go beyond organic and move towards the bio-intensive world of low-till, animal power, and soil building through ecologically sound systems.
Please forward this email as you see fit! More details below.
In good food,
Farmer Brooke & The URBAVORE Crew
