Interns and WWOOFers
We are a small sustainable farm located in Long Beach, WA. Our farm serves our community through restaurants, our farm store, and sometimes through Farmers Markets. We also have a C.S.A. program we hope to grow to 30 members, with two different drop off points. We have almost an acre in cultivation with 2 large greenhouses, a geo-dome and a number of beds outside.
As an intern/WWOOFer here at Green Angel Gardens, you will be working with guidance from Larkin Stentz, owner and instructor in Biointensive food production.
It will be a hands-on experience, you will get to learn many aspects of organic food production, sustainable living practices and having fun.
You will do activities such as (but not limited too) seeding seed trays, planting/transplanting, watering, weeding, prepping beds, compost teas, feeding and caring for our chickens, collecting farm fresh eggs, preparing compost, a little carpentry, farm store care and stocking with fresh organic vegetables that we will harvest together out of our very own Greenhouses.
There are several housing options and food is provided with some meals communal. Daily meetings and instruction occur 5 days a week. Interns and wwoofers are required to work a minimum of 6 hours per day, 5 days a week.
Transportation will be provided within reason. I.e. shopping, outings, etc.. A farm bicycle is available too. Town is a 15 – 20 minute walk as is the Beach!
We can discuss the weekly schedule when you arrive. If you need to find outside employment during your time here we will work around your schedule. Our desire is for you to work at least 4 – 8 hours, 5 days per week. Your work begins at 8am; an hour lunch at noon; stop work at 5pm. Some days will have inside sit down lesson times too. Communal dinners would be nice, not mandatory.
A One Month Internship is now available. During this time you will receive intensive education in 4 basic areas of sustainability: BioIntensive Vegetable Farming; Wind Energy basics, why we installed our turbine and how and how much it produces and why; Composting, high heat, low heat, humanure composting, making compost teas; Water catchment systems. In addition field trips will offer Interns the chance to see diy building techniques on other farms as well as other sustainable tools used by local residents. Cost of this intensive is $500 plus the regular work schedule of 6 hours per day for 5 days. Room and food are included. Call 360-244-0064 to discuss participating in this Sustainable Intensive.
