A nonprofit founded in 2016, we have a 40+ acre land base, including a 5 acre vineyard. In 2018, we began to develop a low environmental impact management plan, despite few blueprints for organic or biodynamic vineyards in the midwest. We'll also continue to establish a mixed-species orchard & create a community & school garden.
-On the Grounds: Learn about conventional & organic fruit production, & engage our long-term project to develop a low impact management plan. Work in the vineyard & orchard, providing routine care & management. -Around the Island: Work with an Island farm or farm-to-table restaurant learning about the skills of the trade through hands on experience.-Reading & Discussion on current issues in agriculture and food studies
No experience with vineyard work is necessary. 6 weeks in June - July PAY: Stipend for GG work & hourly wage for farm/restaurant workEmail hello @ gatheringgroundwi.org with questions
