The Arthur Morgan School in Celo, North Carolina is seeking a Garden/Farm Intern for the summer of 2014. We are a unique boarding and day school which will not be in session during the internship. The intern(s) will work with the school’s Farm and Garden Coordinators, farming an acre of organic vegetables, caring for chickens, turkeys, a milk cow, and sheep and working on the school’s grounds. Principle responsibilities include weeding, mowing, harvesting, planting, preserving food, milking and caring for animals. The intern(s) would also have opportunities to participate in an informal intern exchange with two other nearby farms. Some experience is desired; enthusiasm and willingness to learn, to work independently and to work hard outdoors is a must.
The school hosts a 2 week-long summer camp for kids 12-14. The intern(s) will be working with the campers on the farm each morning during this period. Throughout the summer, the intern(s) will be expected to become comfortable enough to manage the farm for a total of 1-2 weeks while the Garden Coordinator is gone.
Duration: 30-40 hours/week from early June to late August
Compensation: $100+/month plus rustic room and simple provisions
