Regenerative Agriculture Internship
This summer we are offering a Regenerative Agriculture Internship for college students interested in gaining hands-on experience in small-scale sustainable agriculture. Interns will work alongside the farm team, including volunteers, to participate in every aspect of farm production.
The interns will be supervised by the Assistant Farm Manager and receive training in all aspects of the sustainable agriculture methods used by the farm. Interns will also receive instruction to the ecological and soil health principles that guide these methods and have access to the farm’s library of resources. This is a unique experience to learn valuable gardening skills and get your hands dirty in a beautiful outdoor setting, on the grounds of the Shrine of St. Anthony in Ellicott City. Participation in this internship will also allow you to contribute in a concrete and meaningful way to improving the food security of people in Baltimore City.
Interns will receive a $3,000 stipend, disbursed in increments throughout the summer.
Interns can expect to:
- Participate in all aspects of farm production, including bed preparation, planting, bed maintenance, watering, pruning, harvesting, washing, and record-keeping, under the direction of the Farm Manager.
- Participate in weekly sessions for gaining farm knowledge through observation, written reflection, and use of farm resources (including books and videos).
