Summer Job Skills Program 2019: First Two Weeks


Summer is here, and with it our Summer Job Skills Program at the Central Garden Kitchen and Garden in Kalispell, MT!

We are still in the planting and design stage of the season for the most part- however the students have already been harvesting some herbs (chamomile, raspberry leaves, lemon balm) and making their own tea!

Please enjoy some photos of our first weeks of this season!

The Care Farm Program is a relatively new program in the Flathead Valley. It offers the opportunity to spend time on local farms and ranches, participating in the daily routines of farm life. We serve a variety of people in our community, including those with developmental disabilities, seniors, veterans, and people wishing to volunteer their time on a farm.
