Internships at the Seed Library

by Ken Greene

The Seed Library is looking for interns. We really need the help and hope to make each internship a valuable learning experience. In addition to small-farming basics, our interns also get a chance to learn seed saving skills and be part of the inner workings of the Seed Library.

We’re figuring out housing so our interns can live on the farm. This means being part of our community which is still taking root on a dilapidated 27 acre Catskill resort property. Our small farm plot is located in the heart of the property. This year we’ll be hand-cultivating 2-3 acres and over 75 varieties of flowers, vegetables, and herbs, mostly for seed.
