Riverhill Farm needs six 2010 Interns

15 Dec

Location: Nevada City, California

Riverhill Farm is located near Nevada City in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in California. Nevada City is a progressive town with many grassroots efforts underway and a strong community movement supporting local food and agriculture. Riverhill Farm consists of twenty acres, about eight of which are cropped in a diverse mix of vegetables and annual fruits. We are a community based farm, selling all of our produce within ten miles of the farm, primarily through our 160+ share CSA, the Nevada City Farmers’ Market, and to local restaurants featuring locally grown produce on their menus.

Each season, we accept six interns for a long-term commitment during the months of April through October. We do not accept short-term stays. Interns participate in all aspects of the farm from seeding to harvest. Through the development of practical farming skills, special intern projects, directed readings, discussion and time set aside for more formal learning, we work to provide enough skills that an intern can gain full-time permanent work on a farm or, with enough preparation, start their own farm. Periodically we host agricultural professionals, farmers and ranchers, naturalists and members of other farm-related organizations to complement the educational experience.
