Thanks for enquiring about Waldingfield’s internship program. Our internships start in May and run through the season. We offer two week, monthly and multi-month internships. There is a modest stipend for monthly and longer internships. The goals are to teach you the daily ins and outs of a sustainable organic vegetable operation, from seed to harvest. You will learn how to run a greenhouse, plant in fields, cultivate the crops, harvest, wash and prepare for market/retail, etc. We will also teach soil management, composting, marketing and sales, as well as some machine work if interested.
Those who are considering the longer internships will also work farmers markets, run the farm stand, and learn office duties (record keeping, phone calls, etc).
It is a five day week, Monday through Friday and hours are 7am to 5pm (one hour lunch break).
Any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org, subject Farm Internship.
