Summer Garden Internship
3 people are interested
The Summer Garden Internship is a three-week long program for students over the age of 18 interested in environmental care. This opportunity provides hands-on experience to care for the earth, through service at Redeemer Valley Garden, a ministry of the Sisters of the Redeemer. The internship focuses on service within the local community and the teaching of sustainable growing practices with the option to complete a project of one’s choosing. Interns live together in community sharing meals and prayer throughout the week. We hope volunteers will leave this experience inspired to be change agents and stewards of our shared creation. See our website for more details: http://hrmcorps.org/ministries/summer-garden-internship/
