Three Springs Community Farm Foundation is currently accepting applications for the 2024 Spring Internship Program, March 4th through June 30th (with the possibility of continuing through November if desired). The Internship Program takes place on a beautiful and secluded 80-acre ranch & Biodynamic Farm, in Sonoma County, California. The Internship Program includes 24-27 hours of hands on learning per week. We are seeking 5 interns, one of whom will focus on our animal husbandry program Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays & Mondays, and the other 4 of whom will focus on our vegetable and school groups programs Tuesdays, Wednesdays & Thursdays. (Please choose one when you inquire).

Three Springs Community Farm is a Biodynamic educational farm, with dairy goats, pigs, chickens and vegetables. The farm was founded in 2017 to be a learning farm and retreat for the students, families and faculty of Bay Area Waldorf Schools. We host school children for multi-day farm trips each Spring and Fall, and offer family camping throughout the season.

The Three Springs Biodynamic Farming Internship offers hands-on experience in regenerative, Biodynamic farming practices. Our Internship offers an opportunity to gain experience in all aspects of our diverse farm, including nursery work, vegetable production, harvesting & packing, animal husbandry and irrigation.

Our Farm Interns are important leaders in their own right, helping to guide school group students, and volunteers. Through study and action, we learn together how to support the farm and all its’ inhabitants, so it can in turn support our community of farmers and eaters.

Interns receive on-site housing, farm produce & staple foods. The Internship is a part time, three or four day a week vocational training, allowing interns the time to pursue a part time job or other education. Additional requirements include a program completion deposit, returned upon successful completion of the internship, and proof of health insurance coverage. Couples who wish to farm together are welcome to apply.

To apply, or if you have questions, send your interest statement, resume and references to lewsummer@aol.com and/or text to 415-652-4236. Applications will be accepted until the program is full.
