We are accepting applications for 2020 Interns!
We seek to inspire ecologically-minded agriculture & partnership with land & people. Through our developing demonstration farm & vineyard, we aim to educate in sustainable agriculture while strengthening the health of people & the environment.
A nonprofit founded in 2016, we have a 40+ acre land base, including a 5 acre vineyard. In 2018, we began to develop a low environmental impact management plan, despite few blueprints for organic or biodynamic vineyards in the midwest. We’ll also continue to establish a mixed-species orchard & create a community & school garden.
On the Grounds: Learn about all the aspects of our 20 acre agroecosystem, including how we grow grapes organically, establish apple, pear and chestnut orchards & a vegetable garden, & graze a small flock of sheep in the vineyard & orchard. Work in the vineyard & orchard providing routine care & management.
Around the Island: Work with an Island farm or farm-to-table restaurant learning skills of the trade through hands-on experience.
Reading & Discussion on current issues in agriculture and food studies
No experience with vineyard work is necessary.
6 weeks in June – July
PAY: Stipend for GG work & hourly wage for farm/restaurant work
