Teaching New Skills and Best Practices

The Wallace Centers of Iowa is evaluating its Farm Apprenticeship program and expecting to make substantial changes. In the meantime, opportunities are available for individuals or groups to volunteer in the garden at the Country Life Center. Please call 641.337.5019.

They taught me that I don’t have to do everything right now, and that maybe I don’t have all the skills I need yet, but I can learn them. You can read all you want about (growing things), but in the end, you need to stick something in the ground. If it dies, well, you’ve learned something.”
