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 three unpaid urban farmer internships for Fall 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: Interns will work 1-2 mornings per week (to be discussed and decided upon ahead of time) either on Wednesdays 8am-noon or Thursdays 8am-noon. Internships will begin the week of September 7th and go through mid-November.
Interested applicants may email a Letter of Interest and Resume with contact information to Katherine at firstname.lastname@example.org. Positions open until filled, apply as soon as possible. For more information, email or call us at 999-3916.
