Overview: Food Waves is a small-scale bio-intensive operation focusing on high quality specialty greens, vegetables, and animal proteins. All of our farming operations take place at Converging Creeks Farm in Colton, OR. Our farming practices emphasize soil health building through the input of animal & plant matter as well as conservation tillage utilizing a harrow implement instead of a tiller to reduce compaction and the formation of a hard pan.
The non-profit aspect of our organization looks at food justice from an educational standpoint where food security comes from knowing how to grow your own food. We offer training opportunities on and off farm all the way from a small backyard raised bed up to a 5 – 10-acre homesteading/market farm. Food Waves is offering full and part time internship positions for beginners to intermediates. Our participants will be trained in all aspects of how to operate a small-scale production farm including seeding, use of farm machinery (2-wheel and 4-wheel tractors), soil prep, transplanting, harvesting, marketing, etc.
Responsibilities of Interns:
May – November = 4 Days/Wk + 3 market Saturdays/month.
