Gardening Internships


The Sustainability Initiative and The Wesley Center for Spirituality, Service, and Social Justice are recruiting Hamline interns and volunteers interested in working with community farming and gardening this summer.  Interns will spend an average of 10 hours per week working with the host sites between the latter half of May and the end of the growing season. There will be some tasks after the term starts in the fall (like harvest celebrations!) around the end of September or early October.  Stipends are available for $10/hr up to 150 hours over the internship season.  Applications of cover letter and resume due by Friday April 1st to Dr. Valentine Cadieux (kvcadieux01@hamline.edu) and Dr. Nancy Victorin-Vangerud (nvictorinvangerud01@hamline.edu). 

Interviews of applicants to follow in April.  

In addition to the four internships, we will also support volunteers who would like to gain experience in urban farming and gardening and can commit at least 3-5 hours.  Also, the Sustainability Initiative is accepting Collaborative Research in Sustainability summer research proposals, which could be proposed in relation to urban farming and gardening as well (deadline March 11, to Dr. Cadieux).
