Our internship program is helping to inspire the next generation of sustainable food system innovators.
FUND AN INTERN'S STIPEND
For a gift of $250, you can cover the cost of the stipend for a high school or college age intern who is completing their second or third term at Koiner Farm. First term interns are not eligible for the stipend given the high investment we make in training. However, interns who are invited to stay on for a second or third term (usually the summer and fall terms) are eligible for a $250 stipend upon completion of their 12-week commitment. Many of our interns opt for college credit or Student Service Learning (SSL) hours in lieu of the stipend. But for many interns, who have dedicated many long hot afternoons to growing good food for their community are happy to have a little spending money, in addition to the skills and knowledge they gain from working on the farm.
“In a year when I felt incredibly disconnected, interning at Koiner Farm brought me back closer to my community and myself.”
- Anna, Blair High School class of '21
