“We offer a unique opportunity to learn from and assist with two different farm/garden operations during the course of one internship. RDC and VGF are just a couple of miles down the road from each other. We are located just 35 miles north of Milwaukee (a half hour drive) in Fredonia, WI. “
Educational Opportunities: "This is a wonderful opportunity for an individual who is interested in small scale organic agriculture, to learn what it takes to work on and operate a small scale farm. There are opportunities to expand upon and implement experimental plantings (vertical garden, hanging garden, hugelkultur, aquaponics or hydroponics) depending upon your interests. There could be potential to do educational programming with the camp youth. "
Skills Desired: We are looking for an enthusiastic person that can work independently and is willing to be part of a team effort. A positive attitude and a desire to learn are a must. Must like dogs as we have three and all three dogs are heavily involved in day to day activities. Must be able to lift at least 50 lbs as feedbags and hay bales weigh this much.

Housing: "Private housing in our RDC trailer, you would need your own transportation."
