Greetings from MESA!
Are you thinking about who your interns or crew will be for the 2015 season? Still looking for that extra bit of inspiration - the right person that makes farm work all the more meaningful? MESA still has some highly qualified international farmers looking for places to train in the U.S. from Mid-April through (at least) Mid-October.
Help build an international network of small farmers committed to sustainable farming by hosting a MESA Steward. Take a moment to review the roster (http://www.apps.mesaprogram.org/review_applicants/applicants.php) and you might find the fresh perspective you're looking to add to your farm this season.
If you're not too familiar with MESA, or you want a refresher, check out our website for more information about MESA - mesaprogram.org or for more specific information about hosting (mesaprogram.org/usprograms/hosts). This year we are offering host farmers and their entire team access to our new online agroecology curriculum as a perk for hosting one of our stewards (learn.mesaprogram.org). I look forward to working together towards our shared mission of expanding sustainable food systems and strengthening local communities. We hope to hear from you soon!.
-The MESA team.
