Brian, Marcia and Adam supervising on a Farm Day 2014.
Internships at Russet House Farm focus on sustainable living, permaculture, gardening and farming. While we at Russet House Farm are involved with many aspects of sustainable farming, we do not farm for a living. That is, we do not grow meat or vegetables for sale in any context. If you are interested in learning about farming as a business, you would be better off applying to a farm that is involved in a farmers market or a community shared agriculture programme. If, however, you are interested in gaining a breadth of information about regenerative gardening, farming and living, then this internship may be for you.
Our internships are generally available in the summer. In the past our interns have joined us for between six and sixteen weeks. We give preference both to those who can commit to a longer internship, and to those who are available at the start of the summer.
We endeavour to make our internships a learning experience. If you are interested in learning about permaculture, sustainable living, gardening and farming in a context of christian discipleship, then contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
