This stream focuses on production in the Edible Nursery. You would be working primarily with JJ, doing seeding, plant care, greenhouse care, fertilizing, pest management, and  sales prep. This is a great stream for folks looking to zoom in on plant knowledge, and also

Whatever stream you choose, you’ll have lots of opportunity to interact with all the farm and nursery staff and ask questions. We have coffee break together every morning, and we love to nerd out on plants and other ecological topics. We are almost always able to send volunteers home with produce and/or plants from the nursery.  If you’re interested in the internship please email us with ‘2020 Volunteer Internship’ in the subject line. Let us know if you’d prefer to be in the nursery, or the farm, or both and indicate what months you’re interested in.
