We are seeking motivated, humble, and passionate individuals to spend a full growing season with us this coming season at our Organic Farm! Our internship program runs from mid April until mid November and will be a season packed with activity, hard-work, and lots of time learning in the best classroom ever – out on the farm! The farmers, Seb and Bethany, are trained in Sustainable Agriculture through Fleming College and are well connected in the farm community. They have interned on several farm/gardens- the Stop Community Food Centre, Ignatius Farm, Green Being Farm. They have also taken courses in Berry production, animal husbandry, and Holistic Farm Management.
Besides growing vegetable crops for an 80-100 member CSA and for restaurants there are a few other exciting things happening at the farm this summer including monthly potlucks, nut tree plantings, rejuvenating our asparagus patch, swimming in local rivers and lakes, hosting student groups and campers, and more!
Interns live in a cottage apartment. Our farm is a community hub, as we rely on friends, family and neighbours, young and old, to support us in our work and to join us in enjoying the fruits of the harvest.
