We are now recruiting for the 2024 HABESHA Works Program. HABESHA Works is a green jobs training initiative that teaches basic skills in urban organic agriculture and agro-business development. HABESHA Works promotes sustainable agriculture as a tool for economic development within communities lacking adequate job resources and those experiencing barriers to healthy, fresh, high quality foods. The components of HABESHA Works focus on three primary objectives. They are:
- Providing new skills and professional development training and education in sustainable agriculture to adults.
- Developing a community-based approach to health disparities by training individuals to produce and distribute organically grown vegetables in the local urban environment.
- Establishing an economic development model that creates social entrepreneurship opportunities for participants to continue utilizing their training.
