Herb Farm Internship
Whether you are new to farming or have been gardening for decades, we encourage you to apply! This hands on experience is a perfect addition to any formal, online, or self study program. Just like how browsing someone’s online profile only gives you a glimpse into who that person really is, reading about plants in a textbook or online can only give you a snapshot of the plant. In order to really know a person or plant, you have to put in time getting to know them, face-to-face. Our internship aims to give you quality time with these plants so you can form a better relationship with them, the earth, and your local plant nerds.
Our 2020 season will be at our new location in River Falls, Wisconsin (see below for map) and will entail more set up and preparation than previous years. This includes:
Raised bed construction
Well and irrigation installation
Pond digging & planting
Perennial garden planting
There will be less emphasis on annual production, harvesting and dehydration and more focus on infrastructure and perennial herb cultivation. If this is something you would be interested in, please apply with the form below. If you would like further information or have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
