SUMMER 2018 Communications Internship

For-Credit Internships & Student-Led Research

Students seeking for-credit internships are invited to work with the Student Farm. Students may work on the farm as part of the production team, where you will learn the ins and outs of production, harvest and marketing. Students can also develop a project with the farm tailored to each person’s own interests and area of study. Student interns could trial different production methods on the farm, develop a new market opportunity, start a workshop series, organize a food donations program, or build an app for organizing farm records. The sky is the limit!
