The Healing Gardens at The Center for Discovery have 2 openings for interns for the 2014 season starting as soon as possible, through November 15.
The Center for Discovery is a large care facility for adults and children with multiple disabilities or with autism. The healing garden program grows medicinal and culinary herbs that are processed mostly for the agency use. From seed to garden to product, residents are involved in each step. The gardens are organic and Demeter certified.
This is a paid position including housing, 40 hours a week with light weekend duties. The apprenticeship is mainly centered on the everyday hands-on work, as well as some other learning opportunities. The ideal candidate would need to have been exposed for 1 season to agricultural work and seriously interested in biodynamic and organic farming.
The Center for Discovery is a mentor farm in the North American Biodynamic Apprenticeship Program, and interns are encouraged to join the program. More information about the farm is available through the NABDAP section of this website.
