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.
