2021 intern feedback:

We are a small 10 person CSA farm. This internship is season long and geared towards a workshare and skill trade. Intern works 12hr/week plus extra time for training opportunities. We have a small end of season stipend and try to gift interns to help you get going on your own the following year. We do have areas of the farm that can be leased as well for the following year. Our works days are Sunday 8am-4pm (or less) and one weekday 3pm-7pm (or less). The farm takes extra time to teach. Extra time beyond the 12 hours exist early on in the season to learn all aspects of small diversified farming. Our approach is relaxed and geared towards an incubator type farm focusing on marginalized customers. Interns should be early to midway in the farming and gardening learning curves.

Educational Opportunities: Tractor maintenance and safety Soil fertility and testing Solomon approach to remineralization fertilizer: procurement, mixing, application Seed selection Planting tracking. Customer interaction Organic certification Produce cultivation, harvest, wash, presentation Wheel hoe, hori hori, tractor tilling, potato-shovel, ripping, plow AirBNB operation Dairy Goats and livestock guardian dog operation Chickens operation Work with marginalized customers: food stamps, youth serving community hours

Skills Desired: Beginners ok. Advanced farmer probably would not be interested. Due to COVID we asked our interns last year to wear masks when in the commons space and with post harvest work.

Meals: We are open to sharing meals with the right person but would want to provide electricity to a larger intern tent if you choose this. Previously we shared afternoon farm breaks and small meals together.

Stipend: Yes but just a couple hundred at the end of the season.

Housing: Kind of. You could camp here. We have space. We would prefer locals in the Portland area that can drive to our farm twice a week. We have a cool bathroom in our barn with clawfoot tub, toilet, sink, and lots of hot water. The bathroom would have to be coordinated on the weekends as we have AirBnB-ers using it. Previously we had local interns who commuted to the farm.
