Field Interns (2 full season [April-November],
LHF is searching for applicants to complete the field crew for the 2021 season. These individuals will be responsible for many of the tasks related to fruit and vegetable farming, including weeding, harvesting, pruning, planting, irrigating, mowing, trellising, fertilizing, pest control, field clean-up, and more. Part of our mission at LHF is educating budding farmers about the importance and details of organic food production, environmental stewardship, and participation in our local economy. Much of the learning occurs on the job during explanations of tasks and impromptu discussions with the managers and other experienced people. We also allow time for attendance of workshops with other farmers in the region. Although the educational aspect is important, we do emphasize a quick, efficient, and thorough working pace throughout the season. For this reason we are looking for individuals with a strong work ethic, passionate in learning about the food system and small scale agriculture. Applicants can expect to work 40-55 hours per week, depending on the time of year.
