Student Internship Program

Our Student Internship Program’s goal is to empower young people toward self sustainability through food awareness and agricultural engagement. Interns work twenty-four shifts of their choosing throughout the season for a stipend of $599 and eight full shares of produce. Interns help with all aspects of daily farm work: from planting, cultivation, harvesting and animal care to carpentry, building maintenance, irrigation, and tractor work. Interns may also help lead field trips of younger or more inexperienced visitors to the farm. Over the course of the Spring, Summer and Fall interns will acquire valuable skills that will come in handy throughout their lives. This program works very well as a Summer job or as a short-term intensive farming experience.
