Internship Applications now Available!

Applications for Better Farm's summer internship program are now available!

Internships run from June 1 through Sept. 1, 2010, with one-, two-, and three-month programs available. These unpaid internships are available to students interested in a myriad of sustainability issues; with each internship tailored to suit a specific individual's needs and personal goals.

Interns have the option of visiting us during normal business hours Monday through Friday (excepting those interested in participating in farmers' markets, held Saturday mornings), or living on-site in shared rooms for a nominal fee of $250/month.  That fee covers unlimited use of wireless Internet, access to laundry, all linens and towels, on-site parking, and a familial atmosphere complete with family-style, sit-down dinners seven days a week, field trips, and movie nights. Other personal costs—including transportation and all other meals—are the responsibility of the intern.

The deadline for internship applications is March 1. All applicants will be contacted in a decision letter by April 1.
