Location: Decorah, Iowa
We are seeking an enthusiastic Luther student with a strong interest in farming and food systems to serve as an intern with Patchwork Green Farm and River Root Farm this summer. The intern will have the opportunity to work alongside and learn from farmers on two active commercial farms in Northeast Iowa to experience the full transformation that food takes as it moves from seed to market. This internship is designed for a student craving more knowledge and experience with food production and the local food system. Applicants should not be afraid to roll up their sleeves, throw on some boots and get their hands dirty. If interesting, please email [email protected] and you will be put in touch with the farms.

Interns have the opportunity to gain valuable skills that will benefit them in future jobs, while also engaging in meaningful work that will help make Winneshiek County a better and more sustainable place for residents.
