INTERNSHIP: School Farm Internship with Burlington School Food Project

Hey fellow ENVSers,

Will you be sticking around Burlington for the summer?  The School Farm Internship is a part-time position throughout this spring and summer with the Farm to School program, a critical group that aims to connect students to high-quality food.  The School Farm intern manages 3 school gardens in the Burlington district: a half-acre plot at Hunt Middle School, the Burlington High School farm, and the CP Smith’s new orchard.  The educational aspect is facilitating workshops and other food-related programs for students. Ideally, the intern would have strong horticulture experience/knowledge and interest in educational programs.  Compensation includes food and college credit.  This is extremely relevant and beneficial work for students interested in food systems in public schools.
