Interns will provide assistance to PSIF staff in building and maintaining shared equipment and infrastructure, producing biochar, growing crops in unused plots and greenhouse space, and preparing for on-site educational events.
Compensation will be based on experience and desire to live on campus. Patterson can provide interested interns with dorm space (complete with a full kitchen and heated showers) and ample camping space. Pets welcome!
