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.
Students are allowed one week of vacation. All other time off needs to be cleared through the direct supervisor. 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.
