Rogue Farm Corps
We have partnered with Rogue Farm Corps and Rogue Community College to share our knowledge and skills with aspiring farmers. Our hope is to inspire potential interns while giving them skills to take with them as they move forward with their own dreams and goals. We are currently reviewing applicants for the 2012 season.
Interns will work on seasonal basis:
Spring/ Planting Phase – Planting seeds in trays for later transplant or sale, direct seeding, tree planting, bed preparation, cover cropping, soil amending, polytunnel construction, greenhouse construction, fencing construction and animal/insect care among other things.
Early Summer/ Growth Phase – Final bed prep, transplanting, direct seeding, seeding trays for fall transplants/sales, IPM, weeding, harvesting, animal/insect care and irrigation.

Fall/ Replenish, Reflect and Rejoice Phase – Harvesting, planting cover crops, preparing for winter, seed saving, post-production, sowing crops/seeds to be overwintered, native plantings and animal/insect care.
