LFG Internship Program

$5,000 goal

Campaign created 17 months ago
Over the years, Lady Flower Gardens has had the good fortune of counting many intern students amongst our ranks. These young people come up with our different member social agencies (ie The Mustard Seed, Autism Edmonton, Inner City Recreation and Wellness Program) that hire them over the summer break to come up with their gardeners.  

However, 2017 was the first year that LFG  hired our own intern student through the generosity of an anonymous donor.

We were incredibly lucky to have Abbigail Hofstede as our first, part-time intern student and the Tuesday and Thursday gardeners at LFG  benefitted from this wise, young soul's contributions.

We have been dreaming about being able to hire Abbi full-time next summer, and another student part-time, who Abbi could mentor to take her place the following summer. One of the ways we are raising funds for this internship program is through the Saturday Harvests which, is open to the general public.

We would like to supplement the funds we have already generated so that we can develop a strong internship program. With more student interns, we anticipate an even greater surge forward in the ability of LFG to serve it's mandate of building a supportive, agricultural community with people who have faced obstacles in achieving a healthy lifestyle.

AND! a great learning experience will be the result for these wonderful young people. An experience which will stay with them for the rest of their lives (as well as help them pay for their education!!!!)

Hey Everyone. I have been letting this fundraiser languish while we concentrated on raising funds for the conservation easement for the farm, which by the way was a huge success! So now that the land will be protected it's onto supporting the people who helps us steward the land. All our member agencies have been asking for one of those great intern students to greet them when they arrive this summer and help support a healthy community experience for them on the land.
