Old Sturbridge Village seeks a college student or recent graduate interested in gaining direct hands-on experience with an educational agriculture program. The intern will work under the supervision of the museum's Coordinator of Agriculture to develop new and expand existing programs. The scope of work will include sustainable agriculture, heritage breed animals, heirloom apple trees, and heirloom vegetables. The interns' duties will be designed around their experience, education, and interests, but first and foremost, based on the Museum Program department's needs. Orientation to the museum and specific training to complete the tasks will be provided. The intern will have the opportunity to experience the workings of New England's largest outdoor history museum.
Please check with your school to see if you're eligible for academic credit. Summer interns receive a stipend of $1,500. The selection process will be competitive, with preference given to students or recent graduates with previous experience with sustainable agriculture programs. Candidates for internships are chosen on the basis of a written application and an in-person or phone interview.
