Farm apprentices will learn from seed to harvest the ins and outs of arid lands agriculture. By committing to 5 months and at least 16 hours a month of volunteering, the farm apprentices not only help the farm grow and flourish, but gain valuable skills related to arid lands food production. Farm apprentices will have the opportunity to attend occasional farm trainings, will receive a certificate at the end of their term, will receive veggie vouchers that can be used at either of our farmers markets, and will become a member of our “farm-ily.” No experience necessary! For more information and to request an application, contact Alex at email@example.com. Download the farm apprenticeship application by clicking here.
Each year TVF hosts a number of AmeriCorps members. All of our positions are currently full (but check back with us next August!). If you are interested in becoming an AmeriCorps with Tucson Village Farm, contact Elizabeth Sparks firstname.lastname@example.org or come volunteer with us during our open volunteer hours! Volunteering is a great way to get your boot in the barn door!
Each summer TVF hosts a number of “externs”. This is a play on words based on the fact that they rarely spend a moment “IN”side. To be considered for this position you must be a UA student with a ranking of sophomore or higher, and you must be able to take the heat! The application for these positions will be posted in the Spring of 2018 and are open until filled, but don’t delay, these PAID positions fill quickly!
