Just Roots has several openings for interns to work on the Greenfield Community Farm for the 2015 growing season. There are four seasonal commitment options :
Full-season (March - Nov)
Spring (March-May) 10-15 hrs/wk
Summer (May - Sept) 20 hrs/wk
Fall (Sept - Nov) 10-15 hrs/wk
We are a small, diverse farm where we all do a little bit of everything. Interns can expect their time to be spent in the field and greenhouse seeding, transplanting, weeding, harvesting, caring for animals, etc. During our CSA and farmers market season, interns will have rotational responsibilities at these marketing outlets. Specific responsibilities will vary depending on season. Just Roots manages several unique programs that interns can plug into, whether your area of interest is marketing, writing, research, medicinal herbs, conservation, farm to school, nutrition and cookingthe list goes on. Farm management will work with interns to craft an individualized educational experience. Education will be primarily field-based but will also include some reading.
Interns are expected to work a consistent schedule. The internship is unpaid, though college credit is available for interns enrolled in school. Interns have access to free vegetables and are invited to attend Just Roots workshops and intensives free of charge.
To apply, please send a resume and letter of intent to farm manager, Aaron Drysdale, at firstname.lastname@example.org
