We are a bio-intensive, 1/4 acre micro-farm serving a small CSA program. We have one position for a FULL-TIME farm intern from July 2014 through June 2015. You will learn by performing all aspects of farming for the CSA.

Private accommodation provided, along with $100 weekly stipend and a 1-person share in the CSA. Our internship is modeled upon the Western SARE farm internship program. Unless successful candidate makes arrangements, there will be no academic credit obtained at the end of this program. This position is physically demanding and sometimes requires working outside of normal business hours. Successful candidate must be able to follow directions and protocols, be well organized, attentive and be able to work independently.

$500 Term Completion Bonus!

 

“I served as the Garden Intern at Hearteye Village from February-October 2011 and found the experience to be empowering, challenging, and one of the best learning exercises I’ve ever undertaken. Working at Hearteye allowed me to try new things, take pride in my work, and share the results with others. It is a position that requires dedication, diligence, and self-motivation. You have the opportunity to take charge of all aspects of the garden, and be proud of your results. Tracy and others at the farm will support you along the way and offer sound instruction based on their 4+ years of experience managing the CSA. I highly recommend this internship for anyone seeking to gain experience in bio-intensive vegetable farming, farm planning, and CSA management. You should be happy working independently and able to go with the flow when things change that are out of anyone’s control.”
