Our friends at the Oakhill Food Justice Farm are delighted to offer four short-term internships at their site in Tyler St, Preston, commencing Monday 30th May.
These will run for four weeks, and involve 16 hours in total, consisting of eight two-hour sessions, two each week (Monday and Wednesday). Interns will receive an hourly stipend of $25 (max 16 hours). They will work under the direct supervision of Jemma Stefanou, Oakhill Urban Farmer and Volunteer Supervisor, and creator of Feed You Farm.
These internships are funded by the City of Darebin and Jack Brockhoff Foundation. The funding is intended to benefit young people (18-25) experiencing challenges and / or disadvantage in obtaining employment and / or accessing educational opportunities.
Lots more information can be found here.
Please send an expression of interest with an email / letter with some information about yourself, whether you have any prior experience in edible gardening or food growing, why you are interested in this internship and what you would hope to get out of it.
