Helping Out at the Farm
At High Pine it is our goal to to make sustainable farming as relevant as possible in the people’s lives, which is why we would love to have you out to the farm to help and learn. Working on a farm gives you an intimate insight to where your food comes from all while spending time outside in a beautiful location. Not only that but your weekly commitment is essential to getting things done and helping produce fresh veggies for our customers!
Workshares play an integral role with out CSA Program by providing an outlet for knowledge sharing and also company on often-lonely days in the field. Throughout the 16 week CSA program you will spend 6 hours a week helping at the farm with daily tasks that included weeding, transplanting, harvesting, and packing. In exchange for your work commitment, you will receive a Standard Size share which may be picked up at the Smiley Market. Working at the farm is a fun and challenging way to become more connected to your food and learn a lot in the process!
High Pine is owned and operated by Fort Lewis College alum and since the beginning we have wanted to provide an educational experience for current students across a number of different majors. Through this unpaid internship you will get an in-depth look into what it takes to grow and sell food in our high desert climate while also seeing what job opportunities exist after graduation. Interns are expected to complete 150 hours of work during the summer months and in exchange will receive credit for their required internship course.
