Call for Herb Garden Interns [Tea Tasting & Tour]
January 22, 2023 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Join us for an intern info session to learn how you can get involved in our herbal gardens and orchards at Fox Haven. In this meeting, you’ll get to hear from past interns and learn about our growing practices. We’ll sip tea, tour some of the buildings we use and we’ll walk out to the orchard and gardens weather permitting.
We accept 5 Herbal Garden Interns for a Spring session (March – July) and a Fall session(July – November). Interns work 2-3 days per week – Wednesday and Friday mornings and every other Sunday. Interns receive training in growing, harvesting, processing and using medicinal herbs through hands-on practice as well as an Herbal CSA share and class once a month. Please look at our Herbal CSA for more information on this offering.
The Internship program is a commitment that you make to our farm and CSA and a commitment that we make to you to offer you the most complete apprenticeship we can to deepen your connection to herbs, hone your organoleptic skills (ability to taste and smell to identify species and potency) and introduce you to the practice of tending herbal crops.
If you are considering interviewing for the internship please contact email@example.com for more complete scheduling and duties information and for an application.
