The Bethany Garden New Grower Program is seeking motivated individuals who want an opportunity to learn about gardening as a career. The garden is set up with raised beds, irrigation, deer fence, and greenhouses. A barn near the garden houses many tools, including a BCS walking tractor and implements. There is also a walk in cooler and a vegetable processing area. High quality compost, cover crop seed, electricity and water are included.
Participants pay a fee of $4,000 or 50% of gross sales, whichever is less, and purchase seeds, fuel and other consumables.
If you are in transition between apprenticing on farms and starting your own market garden, this is a perfect learning opportunity for you. You also get access to two experienced market gardeners as mentors. If you are from out of the area, we will do our best to help you find a place to live near by. The Bethany Garden is located right in the dynamic university town of Antigonish NS.
