Responsibilities of Interns

  • Interns are expected to complete 25 hours of work a week in exchange for full room and board. During your stay you may be asked to do a variety of tasks that may include greenhouse work, field and office work, animal husbandry, nursery crops, etc. Expect the work to be physically and mentally demanding and the conditions to vary. While you will not be pushed beyond your physical ability, we expect that you enter this experience in good overall health. 

  • Once accepted as an intern we ask you to pay a $100 deposit which will be returned to you on your departure. To provide a quality experience, we limit the number of interns we accept each year. In return, we ask you to do your very best to complete your entire internship. If you decide to leave early for any reason, this deposit may be retained.
