Agriculture and Community Health Internships 

2 Positions Open for the 2020 Summer Season (UNPAID)

Program description

We use sustainable agricultural practices to produce a diverse array of vegetables year-round in our three hoop houses and outdoor space. Vegetables are sold at our hospital farmers’ market, provided to patients at numerous clinics,  and distributed through our St. Joe’s Farm Share program. The Farm Share is a collaborative “community supported agriculture” program, which sources fruits and vegetables from local farms and provides weekly boxes of produce to over 170 participants. A section of the program targets families experiencing food insecurity, and weekly share distribution includes educational components related to food preparation and nutrition.
