One to Six Month intern at The Sankanac CSA in Chester County, PA

The Sankanac CSA in Chester County, PA is looking for 1 to 6 month interns, from April 1st to September 30th, to help us with our Demeter certified Biodynamic gardens. We need interns in both our 8 acre, 125 member Summer CSA and our 25 member Winter storage vegetable garden. The Winter vegetables are draft horse powered. Interns will work along side farmers and are welcome to join SAITA, a local initiative to provide education and farm tours to aspiring farmers. A stipend of $130/ month is eligible for interns of three months or more. Work and life is held within the community of Camphill Village Kimberton Hills, an intentional agricultural, craft and therapeutic community that includes special needs adults: www.camphillkimberton.org. Housing are private rooms within our life sharing households. Our work is unique to most market gardens in that we grow food for our community and work with the rhythm and blessing of adults with developmental disabilities. Our internship is a good prerequisite for the one year full time apprenticeship in Biodynamic gardening that we also offer: www.bdtraining.org. For those interested in the draft powered Winter vegetable internship please contact, Todd Newlin at toddturbo@yahoo.com and Jacob Holubeck at sankanaccsa@gmail.com for the Summer CSA.
