We’re looking for 2 hardworking, veg-loving, good humored interns to work with our amazing crew. This is a working internship, meaning all interns will learn by doing, and become a vital part of the whole farm operation. You will be involved in all aspects of growing vegetables according to organic/regenerative standards; seeding, planting, cultivation, pest and disease management, harvest, post harvest, and farm market operations.
We work outdoors in all weather – heat, humidity, cold, rain, snow, etc. All applicants need to be fit, able to work independently and as a team, and live a healthy lifestyle with a positive attitude. Prior work experience with farming, construction, or in commercial kitchens is helpful, but not required. A good attitude and strong desire to learn about farming is a must!
Community housing is provided, plus a $1,000 monthly stipend. All employees have unlimited access to “ugly” veggies, plus a 20% discount on meat and eggs from the farm. The daily hour commitment will vary depending on seasonal demands, but the person in this intern position will be expected to work alongside the farm manager roughly 45hr per week. Our 2021 internship ends November 5th. Join us in making a difference in our community, our soil, and our food!
Please email Hannah at firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume and a brief cover letter, and you will be sent an application. Thank you!
Educational Opportunities: We will be touring other local, sustainable, small-farm operations during the season through CRAFT
Skills Desired: Physical fitness with a positive attitude and problem solving abilities! This is a tough yet rewarding position, and we need "team players" no matter how challenging the task may be.
Stipend: Yes! $1,000/month, plus on-site housing (includes utilities), unlimited "ugly" veggies and 20% discount on beef and eggs.
