Small vegetable farm seeks intern for 2013 season
Small Step Farm is a diverse vegetable, herb and flower farm in the Mad River Valley of Vermont. The farm is entering its fourth growing season and has many opportunities for someone who is hardworking and creative, looking to learn more about growing food and operating a small farm.
The intern will work closely alongside the farmers in the greenhouse, field, and wash station; learning how to set up irrigation, seed, transplant, fertilize, weed, harvest and pack vegetables. You will also gain independent responsibilities such as deliveries to restaurant and grocery store accounts, and helping to manage the community work-trade program.
Applicants should possess a positive attitude, high degree of professionalism, interest in learning and a passion for local food and community. Previous farm and/or manual work experience is required in addition to a strong work ethic in all weather conditions. Must be able to lift 50 pounds and be able to work efficiently in a group or independently. We are looking for someone available 20+ hours a week. Weekly stipend and farm produce provided.
