Permaculture Internship (May-September 2020)
Unadilla Community Farm
West Edmeston, NY

Unadilla Community Farm was founded in 2013 by a group of WWOOFers (volunteers working on organic farms) dedicated to the goals of the back-to-the-land movement. We are situated on 12 acres of field and forest, located alongside a growing Amish community, in central New York State. We are building an off-grid solar-powered homestead and education center following the principles of organic agriculture and permaculture design. We grow over 200 varieties of organic annual and perennial vegetables, mushrooms, herbs, and cold-hardy fruits, nuts, and berries.

2020 is our 7th season welcoming interns at Unadilla Community Farm. We host interns with all levels of experience, with a commitment to sustainability and a desire to learn together as a community how we can forge a new life independent of mainstream consumer culture. Our internship program is more than just a beginning farmer training program. It is an immersion into a rural, off-grid sustainable way of life. Our accredited internship program has attracted interns from North & South America, Africa, Asia, Europe, and New Zealand. Interns participate in tasks ranging from organic farming (raising seedlings, transplanting, no-till bed prep, weeding, mulching, watering, harvesting), landscaping, natural building, food preservation (drying, canning, fermenting), seed saving, and firewood preparation.

Interns receive room & board, including all vegetarian/vegan gourmet meals and unlimited snacks. Monthly educational field trips and classes are provided, in addition to daily hands-on skills training. University students in the U.S. & Canada have earned course credits for our internship program - ask your advisor if you are eligible to earn credit too!

Email us at unadillacommunityfarm@gmail.com to apply for the 2020 season (May-September)! Please include your resume. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis. Interns commit to a minimum 1-month stay or more. Visit our website for more information: https://unadillacommunityfarm.blogspot.com/
