Welcome Laurie Kirchman, our new Entrepreneurial Coordinator! As such, she is taking over the weekly vegetable/microgreens production and distribution service we have been running called our CSE, and is turning it into a youth entrepreneurial training program.
Laurie brings expertise in non-profit earned income ventures within the setting of an urban farm and also expertise in youth employment programming. Plans are underway to weave our CSE project together with the existing Youth Organics program. Youth will be trained in all aspects of the CSE project including growing and harvesting food, packaging and marketing, customer service and bookkeeping.
If you know any high school age youth or college interns who are interested, please contact us!
We will be accepting new members in upcoming weeks. Members receive up to $10 or up to $20 of produce, eggs, and/or mushrooms weekly. Please contact laurie [at] radixcenter.org if you are interested.
