Internship Program Living Lands Agrarian Network Nevada City, CA

Begins March 5 and ends November 3, 2012.

As a diverse group of passionate farmers, we consider it our responsibility and honor to mentor aspiring farmers in the art of small-scale, ecological agriculture. The 2012 Internship program is designed for those who have a strong interest in ecological farming and want to learn from those who are actively engaged in their own small-scale farming business.

Education & Training

Living Lands is a network of independent farmers who work collaboratively to mentor and train interns. This year, we are offering three distinct internship tracks: Market Garden, Animal Husbandry, and Community Education.

The 2012 internship program is an eight-month program, starting March 5 and ending November 2. Interns are engaged in work and education Monday through Friday - see more details under "Expectations".

Supplemental Income

This is an educational internship, whereby you receive education, room, and a food stipend. Our network of farmers donate their own time to your education, and in return they receive your support on their farms. Education and mentoring is core part of our organizational vision, and our farmers are dedicated to this work.

If you anticipate the need to find supplemental income during the internship, we have a small network of community members who frequently hire our interns for farm or garden related labor. While we cannot guarantee any set amount of hours, we can use our community connections to help you find some part-time work.

A scholarship stipend may be available for those in special financial need. If this applies to you, please include more details on your application form.
