Judea Garden Internship – Steep Rock Association

Internship

Two paid, part-time, Judea Garden Internships are available for high school (16 years old by end of summer) and college students to gain hands-on, real-world experiences in sustainable agriculture and current food issues by working in SRA’s food bank garden.

Now in its 16th growing season, Judea Garden has grown, harvested, and distributed over 50,000 lbs. of fresh produce to members of our community with limited financial resources through local food banks, senior centers, and social service agencies. Interns will identify and control insects and diseases, identify weeds and their properties, use succession harvesting through planting for fall crops, harvest and distribute foods, and participate in all garden tasks. At the end of the summer, interns will present a project showing what they learned to the local community as part of our Open Garden Day on August 17.
