Crickets Cove Farm and Forge is NOW accepting applications for interns on our USDA Certified Organic and Certified Biodynamic farm. We plant in a food forest, have an aquaponics set-up, flood irrigate & enjoy living in the woods surrounded by incredible nature.  Our interns enjoy a wonderfully appointed cottage, incredible food and as much knowledge as they want.  We're always interested in trying new things, like the rice paddies or mushrooms blooming in & out as well as a new silvo-pasture area for future endangered heritage animal raising.  
Check out our website www.cricketscove.net. Applications are available under the "Get Involved" tab.
We are not in a position to accommodate children or pets - sorry!
I hope to hear from eager, excited, folks that want to participate on a growing market farm.

We are still searching for the right people that have some experience and want plenty more.
We will be ready to fill back up in March.
Cheers

I have gotten loads of questions:
After 2 months, we certainly will offer a stipend and a % of net profits
Room and board is included in a separate intern cottage (we have 2 dedicated cottages) each is 2 bedroom, den, kitchenette and grey water system with composting toilet.  Dinner is family style with everyone taking a night to cook for all.  We have many different gardens, some 6 years old and settled up to a 6 month old area that we are prepping the pasture for future endangered heritage animals.
Yes, we totally need focused, passionate people to help.  We are not in a position to pay much, but it's a beautiful, healthy, artistic environment meant to educate, be educated ourselves, share and create.
We will hopefully be offering a PDC this spring/summer with some of the most important Permaculture Teachers in the USA coming to teach. 
Please check out our site (yes, we also would love someone that could help with our social media stuff) to get a good view of what we're doing in an area that so desperately need a perma-presents.
thanks for checking us out.
