Jul 02, 2009 09:41PM
The New York Times reports that interest in summer farm work among college students has never been so high, according to dozens of farmers, university professors and people who coordinate agricultural apprenticeships. Katherine L. Adam, of the National Sustainable Agriculture Information Service, says that 1,400 farms sought interns this year; that’s almost triple the number 2 years ago.
Stipends are generally modest, with room and board included. Academic credits may also be offered.
