Better Farms internship program runs in one- to three-month intervals and is available to individuals interested in a myriad of sustainability issues. Each internship is carefully tailored to suit a specific persons needs and goals. We offer internships geared toward organic small-scale farming and gardening, general farm management, alternative building, rain and graywater collection, aquaponics, community outreach, organic cooking, canning/preserving, participation in local supper clubs and/or food kitchens, and outdoor survival.
The environment is simple and communal. Interns are expected to do their share in maintaining the condition of Better Farm as well as its peaceful environment. Additionally, all those accepted for internships at Better Farm are expected to work seriously and to conduct themselves in a manner that aids fellow residents in their endeavors.
Many sustainability specialists visit Better Farm throughout the year to offer mentoring and guidance to students interested in coming here to work and gain valuable experience. Additionally, interns have the option of taking any workshops scheduled during their time at Better Farm.
Interns have the option of visiting us during normal business hours Monday through Friday, or living on-site in shared rooms for a nominal fee of $450/month. That fee covers lodging, wireless Internet, use of the laundry machine, all linens and towels, on-site parking, and 24/7 access to the communal kitchen (fully stocked with food).
All internship applications must be submitted to email@example.com. Applicants will be notified of their status within one month of submission.
