Volunteer for a CFANS senior project at Big River Farms
Lend your Saturday morning - on May 30, June 13, June 27, July 25, August 15, September 26 and/or October 24 - to introduce a group of elementary and middle-school students to sustainable agriculture and the food system. CFANS seniors Lila Westreich and Trent Tracanna are partnering with the MN Food Association and Big River Farms to host these sessions, which will be divided into four parts, focusing on the plant life cycle and anatomy, animals on the farm, soil importance and makeup, and the skills needed to be a farmer. Volunteers will help facilitate youth programs. No previous agricultural knowledge is necessary - training will be provided. If you are interested in volunteering or have any questions, please do not hesitate to email or call Laura Hedeen at the MFA at 651-433-3676 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
