Mentor Members are Agroecologists, Edible Horticulturalists, Organic Farmers, Holistic Management Experts, etc. who act as project managers for Mentoring Program market garden start-ups and farm transition/start-up projects. They perform the following services for Mentoring Program Mentees that they accept:
- Project manage the landscape design, costs estimate, financial projections, and implementation program,
- Oversee ongoing development of their Mentees’ projects, and
- Assist in leveraging their Mentees’ into production of healthy soils, healthy food, and economic resilience.
In exchange for these services, Mentor Members receive a retainer for projects they accept plus 5% of their Mentees’ Online Farmers’ Market sales on a residual basis. The greater the number of Mentees successfully mentored into production, the greater the number of residual income streams to Mentor Members.
