Internship and employment opportunities

ANNOUNCING THE 2018 SUMMER STUDENT FARM INTERNSHIP!

The Office of Agriculture and Urban Programs (OAUP) and Rutgers Gardens are pleased to announce a 16-week summer internship for the Student Farm at Rutgers Gardens. This is a unique opportunity for students to participate in the Farm's commitment to a future rooted in organic production, local food justice and security, community outreach, and student research. Interns will be involved in all aspects of small-scale organic farming at our one-acre site - from bed preparation and planting, to harvesting and distribution of produce. Students selected for this paid internship will work 30 hours per week (with some weekend Market hours), and may receive tuition reimbursement for the three-credit summer course "The Principles and Practice of Small-scale Organic Farming," offered through the Agriculture and Food Systems program.

The internship runs from Thursday, May 10 through Friday, August 31, 2018. To apply, please complete the 2018 Internship Application and email to Arianna Lindberg or deliver to the Department of Landscape Architecture (Blake Hall, rm 112). Complete application materials must be received by February 15, 2018. Selected applicants will be contacted for interviews that will be held in late February. For more information, please contact Arianna by email (a.lindberg@rutgers.edu). Also, visit the Student Farm web page.
