LUFP is offering three unpaid urban farmer internships for fall 2012. Interns will work with farm staff to winterize farm fields, plant in the hoophouse, weed, tend, and harvest hoophouse crops. Interns will help prepare for markets and farm stands, build community outreach, and complete other farm tasks. Interns will work alongside farm apprentices and farm manager. Qualified applicants will have strong communication skills, a desire to work as part of a farm team, willingness to work outdoors in all weather conditions and the ability to perform a diverse set of farm tasks that will include lifting and carrying heavy objects (as much as 40 lbs at times).
Internships will run from September 25th-November 30th and will require a minimum of 3 hours/week of on-site work. Schedule is flexible weekdays 8:30am-4pm, and will be set up individually with interns at the beginning of the internship.
