New Beginnings: 2015 AMI Farm Fellow Edition

By Mandy Henkler


April has come and gone and May has arrived in full force with beautiful skies and warm sunshine. Time has been flying by and I can't believe the 2015 AMI Farm Fellows are finishing their third week already!


The new bunch arrived on Sunday, April 18th and spent the week with host families in Staunton. Each day they would walk over to VSDB and spend the day learning about Permaculture in the classroom and on the AMI Urban Farm at VSDB. By the end of their AMI Farm Fellowship, each fellow will have the opportunity to earn a Permaculture Design Certification.


The week was a great success with lots of budding friendships, delicious food, good conversation and a lot of great knowledge shared.


Here are some pictures of the week to share with you all!

Move in day!
