Internship Program

“Throughout the internship I grew in so many ways, both professionally and personally. Coming in with limited growing knowledge and being unsure of where my interests lay, I feel like I have come out of the internship feeling sure of myself professionally and personally. I developed so much of the knowledge and skills required to run a small farm and further developed management skills...”- Leah Middlebrook, 2018 Organic Farm Management Intern

"Really saw myself grow as an educator and become confident teaching such a variety of lessons and in front of such a variety of ages! Also learned SO MUCH about planting, growing, harvesting, cooking, bees, compost, etc. Best two seasons ever!"  - Katie Cevaal, 2018 Environmental Education Intern
