We’re looking for a well-organized, motivated student who enjoys strenuous, rewarding work which involves taking care of dirt, plants, and customers. The daily duties include: field care of bulb crops and interspersed plantings, weeding, dividing, digging and shipping orders, and planning for events and tours. Specialty areas of work can be assigned based on our need and intern interest. Interns are also involved in garden design and installation work, education too, in fact in all aspects of our business.
We also do garden design and installation, so occasional trips away from the farm to job sites will be required.
Pay: $10 per hour, plenty of meals, travel cost and housing on the farm.
Dates: internships work during the summer. We are flexible in date ranges and days off.
Housing: included in a small, lovely loft in a cobb barn studio. When on design work, housing varies.
Recent interns have continued from here to:
1. Tulane University (PhD in Environmental Science),
2. Togo with Peace Corp (Composting Project),
3. Atlanta Botanical Garden (Gainesville Location),
4. Graduating from UGA in Secondary Education.
We are a small, family owned business. Communication, consideration, and desire to be part of our community are critical. Please review our website, Facebook, etc., to see if you would be a good match for our small team. If you’d like to speak to former interns, please inquire.
