Display Gardens (1)Our internship is a nine month commitment with an eight-month educational program including classroom education, independent projects, and hands-on learning. We draw on our expertise in plant propagation, tree fruit production, viticulture, market development, and vegetable production to give interns a rigorous experience to prepare them to be farm owners, key farm employees or entrepreneurs and professionals involved in the agricultural industry or advocacy.

Interns join staff to accomplish the tasks of a working farm for four days of the five they are asked to be present at the farm per week. There are opportunities available to work at Cloud Mountain’s on-site farm and nursery or a number of Host Farms who range from culinary herb to livestock production depending on a candidate’s interests.  One day each week is dedicated completely to the education of the interns. In addition to these educational experiences, including field trips, workshops, and lectures, interns can expect to dedicate 3 to 6 hours a week to some homework and a full reading program to be completed on their own, in time with the curriculum. The balance of work and education shifts throughout the season as interns gain more knowledge with which to accomplish the growing demands of the farm.
