Through an internship/apprenticeship with Crescendum Flower Farming you will learn:
year round farm planning
the principles of "no till" farming
flower harvesting and storing
the principles of small scale composting
basic floral design
and a slew of other tid-bits that we are here to share!
Apprenticeships will be granted to those with some farm, environmental or sustainability experience who are looking to further their knowledge and possibly start down their own farming path. One apprentice position will be mainly focused on marketing.
Internships will be granted to college students with a degree interest in agriculture, environmental studies, sustainability or marketing.
These positions require roughly a 12 hour per week commitment (two 6 hour mornings a week) and are unpaid at this time. These positions are how we fill our future paid positions, so they are a great stepping stone. Though we cannot currently provide monetary compensation for your time and sweat, we are certain you will walk away with an abundance of knowledge and experience to take with you into the future, be it on your own farm or in a sustainably focused field. Apprenticeships start in March and run through late October, while Internships follow the standard school year and start in early-May and run through mid-August; but we're always in need of additional hands if you'd like to get started sooner.
**One stipend position will be granted to a deserving candidate. This is meant for someone who is managing true financial hardships and would be unable to accept an unpaid position.
