The FarmLINK Outreach & Resource Development Intern will work with the FarmLINK Program Manager to develop case studies and short video profiles of innovative and successful land tenure, farm business and mentoring arrangements for the FarmLINK website (http://www.farmlink.net). The Intern will also help to develop outreach, communication and resource materials.
FarmLINK.net is a matchmaking tool that brings together new farmers who are looking for land or mentoring with farmland owners who have land available or expertise to share. By documenting existing working models, the intern will be providing an invaluable resource to those considering similar arrangements.
Through this position, the intern will also have the opportunity to participate in various aspects of FarmStart’s daily operations (meetings, events, workshops) and to connect with individuals, resources and networks that are supporting new ecological farmers across the province.
We are looking for a results-oriented and self-motivated individual who can also work as part of a team. We hope to find a skilled writer and storyteller who is comfortable interviewing farmers and who can communicate complex ideas in straightforward and creative ways.
