The Horn Farm Center’s Farming Internship is a part-time, hands-on training program for people with 0 to 2 years of farm or gardening experience. The program provides foundational knowledge and practical skills for those interested in small-scale, intensive, organic vegetable and permaculture-based production methods. This program will be valuable and suitable for anyone interested in exploring a future in small-scale vegetable production as well as anyone interested in learning growing skills for the purpose of homesteading, gardening, and feeding themselves and their community. Find out more at:  https://hornfarmcenter.org/internship2018/ or by contacting Education Director, Jon Darby, at educationdirector@hornfarmcenter.org or (717) 332-8710.
