Internship – Adelante Mujeres, Forest Grove
Adelante Mujeres is a nonprofit located in Forest Grove, Oregon committed to providing holistic education and empowerment opportunities to low income Latina women and their families to ensure full participation and active leadership in the community.
The Sustainable Agriculture Program provides aspiring Latino immigrant farmers and gardeners with the training and skills necessary to grow produce using sustainable methods and to successfully market their products. We also run the local farmers market in Forest Grove, a distributor and a multi-farm CSA. Adelante Mujeres also operates a business coaching program and subsidizes commercial kitchen space for those starting catering or processed food (like chorizo, baked goods, and salsa) businesses. We’ve got our hands in lots of different aspects of our local food system, and we need some help!
