Garden Mentors Needed!
Do you love to garden? Are you interested in helping new members of your community learn how to garden successfully in Utah? As a garden mentor, you will provide support to refugee families gardening in the Salt Lake City area. The garden mentor works one on one with the family to ensure they are able to access and utilize their gardening space. This may include assisting with transportation, helping the family increase their gardening skills, and/or assisting elderly gardeners or gardeners with specific nutritional needs to get the most out of their gardens. If problems arise, garden mentors will work with the Refugee Agriculture Coordinator to brainstorm solutions. Garden mentors meet with their family once a week for 2-hours throughout the gardening season, and will communicate with the Refugee Agriculture Coordinator monthly to give updates and receive assistance.
