For those of you who don’t know about the Greenhorns project, it is a multi-level organization focused specifically on young beginning farmers, and includes an incredible blog, a number of web resources for beginning farmers including a great beginning farmers guide, and a forthcoming movie. Click on any of the previous links to learn more. This is a great opportunity to work with a motivated group of folks looking to promote new, young, innovative farmers, and farming practices.
Greenhorns is looking for more residential interns!
Their amazing summer crew is off to other adventures at the end of August, and we are looking for interns to start in early September.
Interns learn first hand about grass roots activism, sustainable agriculture, young farmers movement dynamics, and the processes and procedures of small non-profit management. Its a good windstorm to be a part of– with long hours, lots of responsibility, fantastic library access, passionate crew and a LOT of work.
animal husbandry; office work/ filing/ correspondence; farmers markets; restaurant orders; graphic design; busy work; educational programming; event planning; event work; catering; food prep/house maintenance; photo and data management; fall/winter planting; perennial over-wintering; and herb processing.
The internship includes:
Room and board; Resources for independent projects; Total immersion in avant gardening + culture making.
Applicants should write a letter of interest stating proficiencies with software, relevant experience, interest in farming/ activism, professional trajectory/goals, and include references and a resume. Applicants should expect to volunteer for a full day at the farm/ help out for a full event before being accepted–its very tight quarters on the farm so we have to make sure that we can all get along.
