Participants will learn state of the art indoor farming techniques and engage in hands-on operation of the Farmory’s crop production, including planting, harvesting packaging, and sales. Graduates of the program will earn benefits, including scholarships to NWTC or the E-Hub program to further their education. After an initial period the Farmory will operate without charitable subsidies, paying all operating costs and funding program benefits through profitable sale of produce.
The Urban Partnership CDC (a subsidiary of NeighborWorks Green Bay) is seeking additional talent to shape the governing body for this enterprise. Individuals with expertise in food service, agriculture, business, and job programs or related activity are being sought. Interested persons should contact Alex Smith, Farmory Program Manager at 920-448-3075 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Media inquiries to Sue Premo at email@example.com or 920-593-3714. If you would like to become involved with the planning for the Farmory or provide financial support, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 920-448-3075.
