Hi gardeners and garden fans,
As the snow melts off the ground in today’s 60-degree weather, the U.Va. Community Garden Leadership Team is hard at work planning for the coming seasons!
We have two exciting opportunities to get people more involved in the growth of the garden. The first is our second year hosting the Charlottesville Sustainable Agriculture Internship in partnership with Bellair Farm, the U.Va. School of Architecture, and Morven Kitchen Garden, and the second is a call for undergraduate students to join our Leadership Team for the spring and beyond! Please see the descriptions and applications below, and email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions. We look forward to hearing from you!
- We’re excited to offer two paid summer internship positions that offer a unique opportunity to learn about sustainable farming and community gardening through active engagement. Interns will gain practical skills as well as a greater understanding of food systems by managing the U.Va. Community Garden; apprenticing at the beautiful Bellair Farm, a local farm growing 30 acres of organic vegetables; and participating in a scholarship component. The internship runs mid-May to mid-August with a competitive stipend of $2,000+ and an abundance of fresh veggies. See the attached application, email email@example.com with questions, and send your response by 11:59 P.M. on Wednesday, February 17.

We’re looking for enthusiastic people to help grow the garden into the future. First and second years are strongly encouraged to apply, but third years will be considered as well! Please see the description attached and email your application to firstname.lastname@example.org by 11:59 P.M. on Wednesday, February 17.
