Growing to Give interns will volunteer at the Garden 2 days per week (every Tuesday and another day of the intern’s choice). Interns will gain critical life skills such as growing food, as well as leadership skills. Interns will participate in a multidisciplinary program where they will help plant, maintain, and harvest the garden while also helping facilitate our hands-on educational programs in exchange they will receive required volunteer hours and a portion of the harvest.
Interns will participate in a number of different learning opportunities, throughout the growing season, aimed at teaching organic gardening and sustainable growing practices and building community around food production. Interns will train with our garden advisor and local Master Gardeners.
