  1. Hi. My husband and I are very much interested in this opportunity and have a few questions. First, can the intern bring their family with them? Are dogs allowed? To clarify, food and shelter are provided during the internship, and afterwards the intern will earn money through their own CSA, is this correct? How long is the internship expected to last before the intern can start their CSA?We keep the Sabbath from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday, but are willing to work, every other day, will that be a problem? Thank you for answering my questions! I look forward to a reply.
