We frequently have enough projects going on to keep an additional set of hands busy. If you think you might be interested in working with us please take some time to review the information on this website to learn more about Trybal Revival Garden. The What We’re About page will give you a good idea of what we value, what we are accomplishing, and the areas of opportunity for experience that exist here.
This internship is not a paid positions. We provide lodging in our home and shared use of the main living areas including the kitchen and laundry facilities for the duration of the internship in exchange for 15 hours of work per week; OR lodging and food in exchange for 25 hours of work per week. Together we will determine a mutually beneficial schedule.
We expect the intern to arrive with adequate clothing (including appropriate shoes/boots) for the work to be performed. We can provide work gloves, safety glasses, and ear protection as needed. Work performed may include heavy shoveling, digging and wheel barrowing. We will be reasonable in breaking up this work so as not to cause undue strain, but some amount of “heavy duty work” should be expected.
A big part of our mission at Trybal Revival Gardens is education, and we want to make the internship a positive and rewarding experience in return for the work performed. There is enough work to be done here that we will be able to provide opportunities to work on a variety of projects and should be able to tailor a portion of the work to areas the intern is specifically interested in, but we can’t guarantee all of the work/tasks will be rewarding/inspiring/educational.
Applicants must be 18 years of age or older. The ideal candidate will have a strong interest in organic gardening and sustainability with some knowledge or experience in one or more of the following areas: permaculture design, organic vegetable gardening, organic orchard management, carpentry, urban renewal, community development. Applicant should be self-motivated and able to work independently.
Applicants are asked to submit a completed application form (download at top of this page). We will contact qualified applicants to make an appointment to meet on-site, at which time the applicant will provide us with two forms of identification, one of which will be a photo ID. We will then check the applicant’s references and perform a background check. (Because the intern will live with the TRG hosts for an extended period of time, we feel it is important to meet face-to-face to get a sense for each other. The only exception to our requirement of meeting in person would be a personal recommendation from someone we know).
After evaluating the applicants, we will make a determination and contact all applicants to either offer an internship or let them know they have not been selected.
Upon arrival at Trybal Revival Gardens, the intern will be required to sign a release of liability which will hold harmless Trybal Revival Gardens and it’s owners of any liability resulting from injury while staying with us regardless of the nature or circumstances of the injury.
We reserve the right to terminate the internship arrangement at any time prior to or during the internship.
