Spring/Summe rFarm Interns work under the guidance of the Farm Manager to prepare the GRuB Farm for the season along with youth and volunteers. You will receive training in group facilitation, greenhouse production, field preparation, propagation and transplanting techniques, farm planning, record keeping, farm tool/equipment training, marketing, harvesting, irrigation, and various other early-season farm activities.

There may also be opportunities to lead youth with the GRuB Spring Field Trip program. As a Farm Assistant, you will be GRuB ambassadors: working with youth, volunteers, and GRuB staff during a crucial time for the farm, setting the foundation for the farm season.
