This is the trial period and also known as germination period. This is where we get to know the member. What they want to do in life? Opportunities, and what skills they have. This is the interview process but no rejection. This is what distinguishes Cultivate Immokalee from the rest, community wide. In this phase, members are testing out the ideology of Cultivate Immokalee and family cohort. This is a 3 month max period depending on how unsure the member is. The next phase (roots) will be initiated by the member as soon as they ASK if they can do more.
