Internship Details:

Join our team! Applications are now open for the 2024 Farm Fellowship, which runs from April 29-October 5.

Fellows help to tend to the food forest, harvest and pack crops for donations to food pantries and mutual aid groups, and help to carry out community volunteer days. The fellowship focuses on experiential, hands-on learning, where fellows work alongside the farm’s senior staff, to learn how to efficiently carry out sustainable farming techniques at-scale.

Optional weekly classes are taught by the farm’s Project Manager to provide an opportunity for more in-depth learning for tasks learned in the field. Class topics include: farm/garden design, food forest design, irrigation system design, dynamic accumulator plants, tiny home design, off-grid photovoltaic systems, and more.

Fellows are paid $20/hr and the schedule is 24 hours a week. (Local fellows who live in the area can arrange a reduced work schedule, such as only working 1-2 days a week.) For fellows who live on-site, room and board is provided for free.
