Spoutwood Farm CSA

• Apprentices
• Interns

Spoutwood Farm CSA (Community Supported Agriculture), established in 1996 is going into its 19th year of operation. Spoutwood Farm Center, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit educational farm in Glen Rock, PA (southern York County), is seeking highly motivated, highly qualified applicants for the following positions:

1) CSA Associate Apprentices. These are also full-season positions. However, here again, Associate Apprentices are expected to take on significant responsibility. Some involvement with other Farm activities – including Festivals and Education programs – will also be included. CSA Associate Apprentices receive a stipend, and free vegetables, but cannot be guaranteed lodging on the Farm. We will endeavor to work with you to solve your lodging issues.

2) CSA Interns (one month to full season, number variable). CSA Interns are typically college students or older who are interested in experiencing community supported agriculture from the inside. Interns may assist with all aspects of CSA operations, but do not have the level of responsibility expected of Apprentices, and need not sign up for the full season. CSA Interns normally do not receive a stipend, but we will work with you to obtain credit at your school, if desired, and you will receive vegetables from the CSA gardens.

For all positions drive, dedication, commitment, and enthusiasm are essential. So is a sense of humor, and a willingness to adjust/adapt to rapidly changing circumstances and unexpected challenges. All candidates help promote Spoutwood’s educational mission and it’s overall keynote of Hospitality. Note that all positions involve sometimes hard physical labor, in a wide range of weather conditions! Willingness and ability to work well with others, including one’s fellow apprentices & interns, permanent Spoutwood staff, CSA shareholders, and the general public is vital.
