The Luther Gardens Program is seeking six summer gardeners. Do you enjoy planting, weeding, harvesting and other outdoor projects? Have you always wanted to learn more about edible landscaping? Do you want to gain experience with seasonal extension and innovative growing techniques? Are community gardens your thing? Perhaps you're craving a deeper connection to your food. The Luther Gardens continue to expand in size and capacity and provide a unique way for you to learn about food production, food safety standards and creative growing techniques, all the while producing healthy, fresh local food for the college cafeteria.
The expectation is that the majority of summer gardeners will continue working in the gardens through the fall as that is a main harvest time.
To Apply You Must:
1) Submit the Student Summer Employment Application to the Office of Human Resources, Main 25, by March 2, 2015.
2) Complete the online common application on the Luther College sustainability web site. Don't forget to scroll down and complete the garden-specific questions.
