"The Cultivating Success Farmer Mentor Handbook represents the work of many individuals who shared the vision for “a curriculum based on-farm educational experience” for student farmers in the Inland Northwest. Several years of discussion, planning, and in-field educational experiences have resulted in this handbook of useful information for producers who are looking to train a new generation of sustainable small acreage farmers.
The information in the handbook was written and compiled primarily through the diligent efforts of Diane Green. Diane and her husband, Thom Sadoski, operate Greentree Naturals, a small certified organic farm nestled between the Cabinet and Selkirk mountain ranges in rural northern Idaho. Diane and Thom have hosted fifteen interns over the past seven years and have shared their production and marketing knowledge with them and many other students. It took Diane’s first hand experience as a farmer and a mentor to understand what other farmers need to know in order to have a successful farmer-intern experience." -Cinda Williams
