In addition to our year-round employees, we hire seasonal Interns/Crew to assist with the hard, but rewarding work that is required to maintain our facilities, care for our farms and welcome our guests. F&W offers seasonal farm, facilities and retreat Internships and crew positions for people 21 and older who are seeking a more intensive community living and work experience. These work crews began in the early 1970′s simply to insure that the buildings, grounds, animals, and gardens for the F&W summer camps were well maintained, improved and prepared for the following summer. “Crew” has evolved to have its own educational components and an emphasis on community building, leadership training and specific work apprenticeships.
Farm Interns are hired from April to October to assist the Farm Managers in the care of livestock, barns and gardens, as well as help administer activities such as homesteading, crafting, and food preservation within the summer camps and other programs.
Buildings and Grounds Interns assist the Resource Department in grounds maintenance, building projects, equipment repair, and other activities that maintain and improve the camps.
Retreat Center Staff assist the Operations Director in off-season events to include preparing meals and set up for retreat groups, weddings, meetings, and other events held at Farm & Wilderness.
