The Clifton Community Orchard Project seeks to group together those who believe in "planting now for future food security" in Louisville neighborhoods.
The group has an online blog and forum and have quickly realized that like any good movement, they need to make sure they aren't ignoring future generations. With that in mind, the group is seeking interns for a
10 weekend program starting in February that will teach "orchardry skills such as grafting, pruning, planting, and harvest preservation."
The stint is designed for students in jr. high and high school and will pay $8 an hour for a total of 60 hours.
Those who might be interested in making their thumb a lot more green can contact David Coyte at [email protected], or call 893-5172.
