College Credit Now Available for Farm Interns!

We are very excited to announce that college credit is now available through the UMASS Stockbridge School for interns at Abundance Farm!  

 

We are currently accepting applications for four different internships for Spring, Summer, and Fall 2018:

 

Vegetable Production

Spring-Fall: Learn the necessary skills to maintain a 1-acre urban farm and develop leadership skills through facilitation of farm tasks.

Permaculture Orchard Design

Spring/Summer: Apply classroom Permaculture knowledge to a real-life community project!  We are looking for students who have some background in permaculture design and can also help enact the plan.

Community Harvest Facilitator

Summer/Fall:  Attend "Pick-Your-Own" hours at Abundance Farm where clients from the Northampton Survival Center, as well as community members in general, are invited to harvest food and spend time at the Farm together.  Share harvesting knowledge, lead volunteer tasks, and build community.

Summer Food Justice Educator

Summer:  Help plan, enact, and evaluate the teen farming and food justice internship this summer at Abundance Farm.  A great opportunity to gain teaching experience, curriculum design, and support a community project.
