WHAT KINDS OF WORK EXPERIENCES ARE INVOLVED: We strive to give interns a broad, comprehensive experience, from start to finish and everything in between. Tasks include: Seeding, watering, fertilizing and transplanting in the field of over 25,000 vegetable transplants; managing irrigation in the field and high tunnel; cultivating and hoeing weeds; trellising tomatoes in the field and greenhouse; harvesting, grading and packing produce; hauling produce to markets; stocking, rotating and pricing produce; selling produce; delivering produce to charitable organizations; operating and maintaining equipment; possible involvement in internet marketing.
Internship Starts: WHEN WE NEED HELP: June through October. While April and May are busy (it is helpful to catch part of May, as that is when we finish seeding), we usually cover this work with our regular help. July, August and September are crazy busy, with June and October being “just” busy. We often have opportunities for additional work with the remodeling of buildings and equipment repair and fabrication in November. We try to accommodate individual schedule needs, starting and ending dates can vary somewhat. Interns generally work 5 to 6 days per week, 6 to 8 hours per day.
