Howdy!

I am looking for some fun opportunities to gain experience in gardening and permaculture in the north Texas area, especially around Denton or Grapevine, tx.

I am a recent graduate of Texas A&M and currently only work part time in retail until I begin my masters in education this summer. I have an extensive container garden, but would love to learn and be able to garden more.

If anyone knows of any resources to find positions that are part-time paid or unpaid, I would greatly appreciate your advice.

Thanks,
Alison

So far I haven't been able to find anything. There is one local garden/animal feed supply shop that is hiring for a sales associate, but they seem to be more focused on organic animal and pet feed. I looked online to various organizations, farms, CSAs, and haven't had any luck. I finally convinced my parents to let me use there unused barren back yard to build some raised beds and I'm starting work on planning that now. What I really want to do rather than sales is to actually use my hands and plant seeds, transfer seedlings, and learn practical skills such as grafting.

I am definitely looking forward to taking the Master Gardener course next spring to become a Master Gardener. After that, I should be able to find many projects to have fun with : ]

Hi Alison, I am in the same boat kind of, over here in Wichita Falls area. With this drought, our best local garden store has shut its doors after 60 yrs. It is sad to see. I am just getting into permaculture and have never really gardened in my life. Good luck with the search out there. The wife and I would love to live near the Denton area but land has just gotten outrageous with the sprawl of DFW in the past 20 years.
