Looking for an opportunity to work outside, get involved in the community, and learn about urban agriculture? Consider an internship with the Lansing Urban Farm Project (LUFP)!
LUFP is offering five unpaid urban farmer internships for spring 2015. 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.
Internship schedule is one day per week through May 1st on Tuesday, Thursday or Friday afternoons 1pm-4pm. Opportunities to continue internships into the summer exist for those interested.
Interested applicants may submit a Letter of Interest and Resume with contact information to Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible.
