Organic Farming Internship

Experience farming as both as a lifestyle and a livelihood alongside seasoned farmers who want to teach what they know and learn what they don’t. We offer each intern a small plot of land where they can experiment with crops and have their own garden to grow what they want. Inside, everyone is encouraged to read from the constantly expanding comprehensive farm library.
