Plants, Seeds & Cycles INTERNSHIP Program: OPEN NOW!

Are you a seed steward and cultural change-maker looking for deeper training ground? Are you cultivating a career as a seed farmer, seedsman or seedswoman? Our internship program calls you! Together we delve deeply into a new agriCultural paradigm, attuning our selves to the natural cycles and rhythms of seeds. This experiential, comprehensive internship program covers all aspects of seed growing— beginning to advanced seed saving skills, regenerative agricultural and permaculture techniques, crossing, small-scale evolutionary plant breeding, co-production agriculture & much more. Working together, we are reinvigorating the seed house as a multicultural community hub! We work in the seed house, nursery and on local organic farms throughout the year.

Please contact us to learn more and apply! Scholarships available.

Volunteer Program

Our Volunteer Program runs year round! From March to October, we are in full-swing with activities in the Seed House and Nursery as well as outside on our farms. From October to March, we are cleaning and distributing seed in the Seed House. Learn more and apply to volunteer here.
