NEW HIGH SCHOOL INTERNS NEEDED!
We are currently accepting applications for two high school internship positions for our online market.

The Fall Semester internship requires the following:

  • 3 hours of paid work at the online market every Tuesday afterschool
  • a volunteer farm work day, scheduled for a Saturday in the fall
  • a volunteer community service day, to help with one of our many community events in the fall
  • a school project or hobby that helps the student learn more about local foods

Applicants should apply online at augustalocallygrown.org. The positions are both in Evans and start in early August. Strong applicants will be service-oriented, with a good work ethic and commitment to learning more about local, sustainably grown foods.
