The School Garden Network (SGN) of Sonoma County is seeking motivated, responsible and hard-working teens for its summer School Garden Apprenticeship (SGA) program. This program will train and pay up to ten teens during the summer months to maintain school gardens and install irrigation systems to SGN member schools. The mission of the School Garden Apprenticeship is to provide job preparedness skills for youth 16 years of age and older. The long term goal of the program is for teen participants to receive enough training in irrigation installation that it could be a viable pathway for employment in the future.

All teens will be under the supervision of School Garden Apprenticeship Project Manager Annie Klein, and volunteer Steve Ehrmann.
