SUMMER INTERNSHIP

Each season the farm has interns that work and live on the farm from early May to September / October in exchange for food, lodgings and education. Part of Manorun Farm's mandate is to support others to learn more about their food and how to grow it. We support others to grow their own food and in some cases become farmers.
