Student Farmer(s) Sought for Small Biodynamic Livestock Farm and Ranch – East Texas USA

Yesterday, today and tomorrow - the nations prosperity rides on the availability and quality of its food. The American economy is a reflection of the spiraling obesity of its citizens. A rising consciousness can be seen in the press when the Dallas Morning News stated that the Dallas Government schools wanted to buy locally grown vegetables and meats, but can't find enough farmers to meet the order . . . or to that effect. What's to be done?

Falster Farm and Ranch is offering a solution: through the not-for-profit Foundation For Christian Alternatives, basic and advance student internships are being made available. Come learn "Green" with the Falsters
