Success Stories: Ian

March 06, 2017

 Although Ian came to RFA in October 2015 with some previous work experience, he had been unemployed for the past three years.  Ian was in his thirties and without a high school diploma, but arrived with a positive, “Can do” attitude and willingness to perform any assigned task.  Through his flexibility and unshakable work ethic, Ian has gained many new skills and experiences on and off the farm. Recently, a local garden center hired Ian to put his new skills to use by maintaining plants, stocking shelves, and answering customer questions.
