SFS 35000 - Summer Farm Internship


Credit Hours: 0.00. The summer internship will give students the opportunity to spend ten weeks on a farming enterprise, either at the Purdue University student farm, or at another farm in the region. A number of types of internships will be considered, and these might include internships not on farms, but on other farm-related businesses. We will assess these internships on a case-by case basis. The majority of the time spent by students is expected to be farm management work under the supervision of the host farmer. A list of requirements of both intern and host farmer will ensure that interns are engaged in enriching internship activities and not just exploited as laborers. Curricular activities will also be presented at farm visits, workshops and tours. Typically offered Summer.
