General Farm Description: Internship Position Available Green Uprising Farm Spring-Summer 2019 Who we are: We are a five-acre community farm located about 130 miles north of San Francisco, near the town of Willits, CA., about an hour from the Mendocino coast. What originated as an extended family farm has grown into a semi-intentional community of nine adults and three children. Most every day we are just plain grateful to be here and work joyfully and contentedly to shrink our ecological footprint, and try to be good caretakers of the plants, animals, land and soil.
