Summer Internship Positions Now Open with Princeton Garden Project and Farmer's Market
Princeton Garden Project and Princeton Farmer's Market Summer Internship Details:
Time - May 15 - September 5, 2010 (dates flexible) with up to two weeks off, with necessary arrangements/planning.
Pay - We will cover the cost of on campus summer housing, and each intern will get a stipend of $1,700. If you are planning on making other housing arrangements, please speak with us and we can work out payment.
Hours - Each intern is expected to work about 20 hours a week – hours will be logged in on time share throughout the summer.
Work - Both interns will be equally responsible for overseeing the summer farmer’s market located off Nassau, as well as upkeep of both Garden Project plots, located beside the Forbes annex and on the lot north of the Forbes master’s house. The garden will require daily weeding, watering, pruning, and occasional harvesting and planting. Summer crops will include winter squash, cucumbers, tomatoes, basil, eggplant, and peppers, and in August will increase to include broccoli, lettuce, cauliflower, beans, and many more to prepare for the students coming in the fall. Intern is expected to be hard-working, curious, interested in agriculture, and able to work well with others. Interns should keep a log of the work they do, and send weekly updates to the garden managers. Experience is a plus, but not required. A two week training session will begin on the 15th.
