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 six unpaid urban farmer internships for summer 2013. Interns will work with farm staff to plant, weed, tend, and harvest crops. Interns will help prepare for markets and farm stands, participate in community outreach, and complete other farm tasks. Interns will work alongside farm apprentices and may participate in educational discussions. 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 May 7th-August 22nd and will require 4 hours/ week of on-site work either on Wednesdays 8am-noon or Thursdays 8am-noon.
Interested applicants may submit a cover letter and resume with contact information to firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday, April 15th. Be sure to specify that you are applying for the Urban Farmer Internship. Questions regarding the application process?
