Internship Details:


Three Springs Community Farm Foundation is currently accepting applications for our 2024 Summer-Fall Internship Program (flexible start/end dates, June through December). The Internship Program takes place on a beautiful and secluded 80-acre ranch & Biodynamic Farm. Our Interns complete 24 hours of supported hands-on learning per week in our diverse operation, leading to skill-building in many areas. Hard work, companionship, seasonal eating and nature immersion rejuvenate the soul and spirit throughout this peak harvest season on the land.

We are seeking up to 7 interns at a time. There are two available schedules: Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays with a focus on welcoming families for camping and volunteer days, farm irrigation, and stocking our on-site self-service Farm Stand. The focus for our Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday schedule is growing and harvesting vegetables and flowers, nursery work, and, in the fall, leading children in school groups programs. (Please choose one schedule when you inquire). All Interns help with morning and evening animal chores.

Three Springs Community Farm is a developing Biodynamic educational farm, with dairy goats, pigs, chickens, vegetables, herbs and flowers. The farm was founded in 2017 to be a learning farm and retreat for the students, families and faculty of Bay Area Waldorf Schools. We host school children for multi-day farm trips each Spring and Fall, and offer family camping throughout the season. We look to the principles of Permaculture, Waldorf Education, Anthroposophy and Social Threefolding to guide our community work, endeavoring to practice love and direct and compassionate communication.

The Three Springs Biodynamic Farming Internship offers hands-on experience in regenerative, Biodynamic farming practices such as planting with the Moon cycles and applying herbal remedies to the soil. Our Farm Interns are important leaders in their own right, helping to guide school group students, and volunteers who visit the farm. Through community action, we learn together how to support the farm and all its inhabitants, so it can in turn support our community of farmers and eaters.

Interns receive on-site trailer housing, farm produce & staple foods. The Internship is a part time, three day a week vocational training, allowing interns the time to pursue a part time job or other interests or education in their free time. Additional requirements include a program completion deposit of $500, returned upon successful completion of the internship (minimum 8 weeks up to 6 months), and proof of health insurance coverage. Couples who wish to farm together are welcome to apply.

To receive an application or if you have questions, please email Lew Summer at and/or text to 415-652-4236. Applications will be accepted until the program is full.
