Our interns and volunteers are an essential part of the Arcadia family. We love the energy and talents they bring to the farm, and they're involved in all aspects of our small operation.
We have two positions within the Farm Education Programs that are open for the fall. The Farm Education Interns and Farm Education Volunteers are vital to the continued success of the Field Trip program.
The Arcadia Farm Field Trip program helps students make the connection that healthy, fresh food comes from the earth. It also familiarizes students with new fruits and vegetables that grow near Washington, DC, so that they will be more likely to eat those healthy foods when they see them in the cafeteria or at home.
Our fall Farm Education Interns play an integral role in our Farm Field Trip program and Farm to School initiatives. Interns gain important skills and knowledge that help prepare them for careers in sustainable agriculture, outdoor education, nutrition, nonprofit management, and more. Interns commit to two days from 9:00am to 2:30pm each week from Sept 9 to Nov 15. Deadline to apply has been extended to August 31.
We also have openings for Farm Education Volunteers. As a part of the Educators team, they provide instruction during Field Trips. We provide Field Trip specific training as well as work days on the Farm to learn more about sustainable agriculture. Volunteers commit to one Wednesday, Thursday or Friday from 9:00am to 2:30pm each week from Sept 16 to Nov 8. Deadline to apply is September 4.
Helping kids discover where their food comes from is quite magical. Experience that splendor for yourself and become a Farm Education Intern or Volunteer this fall. Follow the links to see full job descriptions and how to apply.
