While Red Earth Farms does not have an official internship program, individual homesteads sometimes offer internships and other ways you can get involved. Here you can find a list of current programs and links to more information.
2015 Yarrow Hill Farm Internship: Work includes vegetable production, from seeding to sales and animal care from breeding to butchering. There will be opportunities to spend time at farmers markets, and community events, learn food preservation, how to prepare meals from seasonally available produce, seed saving, foraging, knitting and spinning, season extension, tractor operations, irrigation maintenance, record keeping, seedling production, welding, carpentry, and access to a growing library of farming and homesteading books – Apply here.
2015 Natural Building & Homesteading internship at Gooseberry Farm:
We’re Mark, Alyson, and Cole and for seven years we’ve been working and playing with the homestead we call Gooseberry Farm. As we create our home we’re learning about growing food, building with natural materials, raising a healthy child, and building relationships with our neighbors. We like to share what we’ve learned, so if you want to find out first-hand what it takes to get started on your own homestead, please consider interning with us this summer.
