LUFP is offering seven unpaid urban farmer internships for summer 2015.  Interns work with farm staff to plant, weed, tend, and harvest crops.  They also help prepare for markets, participate in community outreach, and complete other farm tasks and projects.

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 includes lifting and carrying heavy objects (as much as 40 lbs at times).

Schedule:  There are two internship schedules to choose from—a schedule that meets once a week over three months or a schedule that meets daily for one month.  One day/week internships run from May 11th-August 28nd either on Wednesdays 8am-noon or Thursdays 8am-noon.  Monthly internships run Tuesdays through Fridays 8am-noon over one month of time, usually in May, June, July, or August.  Specify schedule preference in letter of interest.

Interested applicants may email a Letter of Interest and Resume with contact information to Katherine at lansingurbanfarmproject@gmail.com.  Positions open until filled, apply as soon as possible.  For more information, email or call us at 999-3916.
