Full Time Internship
Do you want hands-on experience in sustainable agriculture with a community organization that also works in immigration, social justice, international development, and social enterprise management? Tierra Nueva is offering one to two Full-Time Internships to individuals interested in receiving a $750/month stipend and in-depth training in sustainable agriculture in exchange for work on two small organic farms and supervision of other volunteers and interns. If you already have some experience in agriculture but want to learn all the skills necessary to plan, execute, and manage a full farm season, this internship could be for you.
The Full Season Internship takes place in the lovely Skagit Valley, an agricultural community nestled between the Cascade Mountains and the Puget Sound, and it requires a full season commitment: from April 15th through September 15th. If you are self-motivated, interested in experiencing sustainable agriculture in a broader social context, and wanting to hone your agricultural knowledge and leadership skills, check out the internship description and the application below.
Part Time Internship
If you are able to commit to the full-season–April 15th through September 15th–but are only able to work two to four days per week, the Part Time Internship could be for you. Part Time Interns will work exclusively at New Earth Farm two to four days per week. The monthly stipend is dependent on the number of days worked per week but will range from $300 to $400 per month. Part Time Interns will still receive in-depth training in sustainable agriculture and help provide supervision of other volunteers and interns. If you already have some experience in agriculture but want to learn all the skills necessary to plan, execute, and manage a full farm season, this part-time internship could be for you.
Short Season Internship
If you aren’t able to commit to the full growing season, but you would like to gain some experience in sustainable agriculture, the Short Season Internship could be for your. Short Season Interns must commit to at least six consecutive weeks at 16 to 32 hours per week between April and October. Short Season Interns from June through October will receive their stipend from participation in the weekly farmer’s market. Stipends before June will depend on the duration of commitment, the number of days worked each week, and the number of total interns.
