Anything near San Antonio, TX?!?!?! :]    (Posted Fri, Feb 14 '14 at 06:01 UTC)

I am sad that although I am surrounded by farms I have found no outreach to get involved!

I am seeking an opportunity on a farm to learn and help you!

Anything close to San Antonio (West or South) looking to start as soon as possible...

respond or email me at nt878906

this is what is listed on this site http://www.localharvest.org/search.jsp?map=1&lat=29.46724&lon=-9

If you want to work on a farm you will have to do a lot more work that put up a notice on a random bulletin board. You will have to go out to the farms and talk to people and see if they have work for you. If you sit and wait you will wait the rest of your life for such a position.

Well put, Lucy. This summer might be a good time for amping up awareness on the part of consumers. For example, a New York Times article today mentioned that 300,000 acres are likely to be idled in California's Central Valley, which grows HALF of the produce consumed in the United States. To put this in perspective, that is over 3 1/2 times the acreage in my home county (Whatcom) in Washington state.

I hear people whining all the time about not having land to grow food. Yet they are reluctant to come out and work for food - even though the value of the food I give them is about 5 times as much as I get for my labor.

Catering to the unique Ferndale perspective.
