Urban Farmer Internship Opportunity

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 seeking interns who have an interest in urban agriculture, 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 occasional lifting and carrying of heavy objects.  Interns will work with farm staff to winterize farm fields and plant, 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.

Internships will run through-December 5 (excluding the week of Thanksgiving) and will require 3-4 hours/week of on-site work.  Interns schedule their hours during our operating hours which are weekdays 8am-noon through the end of October and 1-4pm on Tuesdays and Fridays in November and December.  Contact us if you have any questions about the schedule as we may be able to accommodate other schedules too!

Interested applicants may submit a cover letter and resume with contact information to lansingurbanfarmproject@gmail.com. Questions?  Please contact us!
