Looking for an opportunity to get outside, grow vegetables, get involved in the community, and learn about urban agriculture? Consider an internship with the Lansing Urban Farm Project (LUFP)!
LUFP is offering nine unpaid urban farmer internships for spring 2013. Interns will work with farm staff to plant, weed, tend, and harvest hoop house crops. Interns will also prepare outdoor fields for a season of growing and plant early crops such as onions, cabbage, radishes, and salad mix. Interns will help prepare for markets, build community outreach, and complete other farm tasks. 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 March 19th-April 26th and will require 3 hours/week of on-site work. Schedule possibilities include Mondays, Tuesdays, or Fridays from 1pm-4pm.
Interested applicants may submit a cover letter and resume with contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible. Questions regarding the application process?
