Organic is growing and hiring
Damn, work is tough to come by right now. Especially for new college graduates.
But with organic farms more popular than ever, they need hands to actually pick the goods — even if the new employees are more book-smart than garden-smart. Over the weekend, the New York Times ran an article looking at the growing number of students who are applying to pick grain, make cheese or generally help small farms any way they can.
There are many opportunities like that right here in Kansas City, especially for college volunteers looking for credit or experience more than cash.
