The Seed Internship Program is now accepting applications for the 2019 growing season. Are you an experienced seed grower looking for interns to help on your farm? Or are you a future seed producer looking for a farm internship where you can learn how to grow seed? The Seed Internship Program was created to match future seed growers excited to build their skills with experienced seed producers excited to train the next generation of seed growers.
The program combines online and classroom learning, farm-based independent study, and real-world experience through a diverse network of family farms. The program is hosted by OSA and the Multinational Exchange for Sustainable Agriculture (MESA).
