Sustain Yourself with an Internship at Better Farm

2010 intern Joe Pintaudi
Do you prefer growing food over grocery shopping, lakes and rivers over swimming pools, compost over garbage, campfires over television, and family dinners over drive-thru lanes? Do you love getting your hands dirty? Feeling your skin tingle under a full sun? Do you relish the opportunity to make the world around you a little brighter, a little better, than how you found it?

Better Farm's sustainability internship program runs in one- to three-month intervals and is available to individuals interested in a myriad of sustainability issues; with each unpaid internship tailored to suit a specific person's needs and goals.

From working in our organic garden to caring for livestock to lending a hand in any number of green-building projects to helping out in the community-at-large, interns at Better Farm get to design a work-study program to benefit themselves and the world around them. Field trips, community projects, volunteer work, weekly farmers' markets, and day-to-day operations at what is truly a living lab of sustainable initiatives and communal living offers Better Farm interns an unrivaled living experience.
