•Each intern will receive a stipend of $250/month. First and last month’s stipend will be pro-rated based on days worked.
•The Youth Garden Project will provide housing. Interns may move in the weekend before the internship begins, and move out by the Monday following the close of the internship. Any extended stay beyond these times must be approved by the Associate Director.
•Interns will be provided with space at their house to garden for supplemental food supply and learning experience. YGP will provide seeds, plant starts, tools, irrigation, etc.
•When YGP is in peak harvest season, the intern household will receive a box of produce each week.
