Organic Garden Internship
The Lord's Acre
Employment type: Internship
Job Location: Farview (near Asheville), NC
Application Deadline: March 1, 2018
The Lord's Acre is a non-profit organic garden (6 acres with 1 acre in production) in the Asheville area, offering volunteers the opportunity to help grow organic food for those in need. We have five outlets for our produce and accept people for both full season (March or April through October) and summer internships.
If you’re a passionate self-starter with an interest in community-based solutions to food issues, if you're energetic, love people, have a positive attitude in all types of weather and want to learn from experienced gardeners and talented board members, write us for an application at firstname.lastname@example.org We come highly recommended by all past interns.
An internship with us is an opportunity to work hard, use your gifts, take leadership roles, and learn more about food security, nonprofits and community building. We utilize a wide range of growing methods and our educational component is experiential, academic and personal. We value interns' minds as much as their muscle and interns work approximately 32 hours/ week. We offer room, board, and an excellent education to full-season interns plus $300 / month stipend and food from the garden. Summer interns must find their own housing (we can help) and do not receive a stipend. You need not have experience to apply but should be comfortable working outdoors.
