White Rose Farm, a biodynamic farm near Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, seeks live-in interns for its 2010 season. We are seeking both experienced farm staff and energetic new comers. The farm will provide room, food from the garden and a modest stipend. The farm is located in a beautiful, rural setting about 60 miles from Baltimore and Washington, D.C.
Sally Voris, the owner of the farm, will supervise the interns. She has completed a year-long part-time course in biodynamics at the Pfeiffer Center in New York. She has farmed for five years and previously was a master gardener, a storyteller, writer and community organizer. Voris makes biodynamic principles accessible and understandable.
Each staff member will take the lead in a different area, but all will work together to get the farm work done. These areas and duties are:
Garden: Oversee and tend three acres of flowers, herbs, vegetables and cover crops.
Animals: Tend the free-range hogs and pastured poultry.
Markets: Plan, pack, deliver and sell farm produce for our CSA, farmer's markets and farm stand.
Education: Assist in the development and presentation of educational programs, seasonal events and full moon celebrations.
All interns will learn biodynamic gardening practices and principles, including making and spraying preparations, planting by the moon and integrating animals into farm management.
The farm also has space for two writer/artists who wants to work part-time and to connect with nature and with other people. Basic housing and food from the garden are provided. A small stipend or profit sharing is possible, depending on experience and responsibility. An ability to give oneself to work and to engage with others is essential.
The farm is focused on creating an environment where people experience the beauty, bounty and balance of Nature. Interns must have a commitment to wholeness and balance and a desire to work in harmony with others and with Nature.Please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or call 410-756-9303.
