Programa detallado

Therefore, participants take part in garden work from the sowing stage to maintenance, irrigation, using efficient weeding techniques, harvesting, and marketing. Doing so, interns gain skills in maintaining a farm by hands-on, learning-by-doing approach. In complement, once a week, theory classes further the comprehension of larger topics such as basic ecology and the needs of plants. Down to earth aspects are shared as well, for example, soil life, cover crops, crop rotations, season extension, integrated pest management (IPM), post-harvest considerations and so on. Additionally, participants can help in the farm’s complementary enterprises (chicken coop, small fruits, berries, sugar bush, and shiitakes) depending on their area of interest and the season in which internship is taken. Since the farm is within an ecovillage, participants will get the chance to experience its lifestyle.
