2014 Farm Internships at Cloud Mountain Farm CenterCloud Mountain Farm Center is a 45-acre working farm committed to operating as a living laboratory, training new crop and nursery farmers, and expanding educational workshops for home gardeners and commercial farmers. Programming at the Farm Center fosters research and the development of diverse and collaborative market strategies for a more stable food system. The Farm Center is a long-standing working farm with an integrated educational curriculum and work-based learning program. This program gives interns a hands-on, farm-based experience in agricultural production and management as well as a solid understanding of the big picture challenges that affect NW agriculture and the communities it serves. Interns at the Farm Center will join the staff for forty hours a week to learn all aspects of planning, production, marketing and environmental stewardship. Interns will be paid for thirty-two hours for their time contributing to the daily operation of Cloud Mountain. The other eight hours per week will be spent learning, both indoors and outdoors, in discussions and in direct activities focused on specific topics as outlined in a syllabus. Activities will include some weekend Cloud Mountain workshops, held both on and off site. The eight-month, full-time, paid internship program is now accepting applications for 2014. A commitment to the full eight months is a requirement; however, if an applicant has a scheduling conflict, we will work to coordinate schedules if possible.
