Summer Intern Position

F.H. King: Students for Sustainable Agriculture

Come help grow organic vegetables on the F.H. King farm!

The F.H. King Students for Sustainable Agriculture Summer Farm Internship program provides both students and community members with an overview of sustainable agriculture practices and applications. This Summer we will be offering one cohort, which will run for 11 weeks from June 1st through August 17th. Interns are encouraged to commit at least 5 hours per week to the internship. One hour will be completed by attending weekly workshops dedicated to growing food, animal agriculture, food sovereignty, etc. We will learn about different agricultural methods and the importance of food sovereignty, as well as gain skills necessary for maintaining sustainable food systems. The other 4 hours will be completed by working in the F.H. King Farm at Eagle Heights Community Garden. Work-days will be co-led by our Farm Directors and the Education Director. This is where we will apply what we are learning to growing food for the Madison Community.

Interns will also have the option to participate in projects which will culminate in intern-led workshops in the final three weeks of the program. If you need hands on experience or want to earn 399/699 independent study credits this is a great opportunity!
