Internship: organic gardening
All interns should expect to work in the greenhouse, harvesting, weeding and planting. Work includes standard gardening projects, record keeping, marketing selling, Farm Share (Community Supported Agriculture) production and other market garden tasks depending on the season. Interns will also complete a project in their chosen area, so applicants should have a strong desire to learn.
Applicants must be physically fit, capable of completing the rigors of garden work and able to work in a variety of weather conditions. Previous farm experience is preferred, but not necessary to apply. Mostly, we encourage an interest in sustainable farming, a willingness to learn and ability to self-direct.
Duration is negotiable. There is a minimum commitment of three months, with options up to 12 months.
Interns work five days a week for roughly 35-45 hours a week total.
This is a working farm so expect to work some weekends.
Compensation includes one meal per day, private room, farm produce, $150/month stipend, and access to WVC workshops. There are also enrichment opportunities to learn fiber arts such as felting, knitting and spinning.
Applications are accepted year round.
