Every Spring, Summer, and Fall, we are happy to welcome a new cohort of interns into the Petaluma Bounty Family. Our internship program over the years has helped train young farmers and created a network of folks invested in our work at the Bounty Community Farm. In fact, we often joke that once you intern with us, you’re stuck forever! Sarah, our nutrition incentives and communications coordinator; Elizabeth, our program associate; our board member Elizabeth; and even our fearless leader, Suzi all started out as interns doing various things at the Bounty!
The experiences of interns vary but we offer a variety of options for folks depending on their educational or experiential needs.
Some examples of focuses that we are offer are:
- Farm Production
- Glean Coordinator
- Volunteer Coordination & Recruitment
- Communication & Outreach
- Non-profit Administration
- Farm Education & Curriculum Development
- Farmers’ Market and Farm Stand Direct Sales
- Farmers’ Market LIFE Administration Support
Also, we are willing to work with students on whatever their needs are to help them gain the necessary experience and skills to further their goals!
Please join us in welcoming our 2021 Spring Interns!
