The Smiling Fork Farm-to-Table Growing Apprenticeship, by Wendy Crews

If you say YES to any or all of these questions, then this apprenticeship program was designed with you in mind! …

Are you tired of feeling disconnected from your food and medicine?

Are you tired of dreaming of learning self-sufficiency skills, but not doing it?

Do you see yourself walking the talk, stepping up, practicing radical self-care by growing some food herbs or medicine?

Do you like to grow a few things but now are ready to upgrade?

What if you could eat salad from your patio? Or cut fresh culinary herbs out your back door to share with your neighbors?

Do you already have an idea or plan for what you want, but don't want to spend hours surfing to learn everything right now?

Want your own homesteading coach?

Are you short on experience and have a mission to grow your own food?
